Cultivating “Major Gifts”
June 9 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am
Join us for our June networking and education meeting, where Laura Alexander, MA, CFRE will present Cultivating “Major Gifts.”
Many people are daunted by the prospect of putting together what has traditionally been called a “major gifts program,” which we prefer to call a “cultivated giving program.” This workshop will lay out the basics in an easy to implement way. Learn how to create a plan for identification, cultivation, stewardship, and solicitation of your top donors and prospects.
