Certified in Volunteer Administration (CVA) is an international professional certification in the field of volunteer resources management In this session, you will learn about the CVA designation, why certification may be right for you, how the exam is created, what the application, preparation, and certification process is, and when you will be ready to apply and how to do so.

As you work to meet your fundraising goals, you might be overlooking one important funding source: corporate matching gifts. Although corporate matching gifts can provide an invaluable fundraising lift, many nonprofits and fundraising organizations struggle to receive these gifts due to donors lacking awareness of their own eligibility and next steps. How can you capture more matching gifts, close the donor awareness gap, and use technology to help? We will answer those questions and run through a live demo of Double the Donation’s matching gift automation software, 360MatchPro so that your organization feels prepared to fully harness this form of giving.

How to Start a Major Donor Program

8:00 am PT

 | 

11:00 am ET

Individual major donors are often considered the Holy Grail of a sustainable fundraising program. Yet many organizations and nonprofit leaders do not know where to start. We hesitate, claiming that we don't know a lot of philanthropists or wealthy people who give their money to worthy nonprofit organizations. The good news is that this overemphasized criteria is not a deal breaker in starting and growing an individual major donor program. Having an active community of people who value your work can be equally important. Couple that important asset with a well-networked board of directions, dynamic outreach and compelling marketing, and you may have what your organization needs to spreadhead the process of building an individual major donor program. Join me for this webinar to learn more!
