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!
