How can you successfully tap into the 80% of donations made by individual donors?
Join fundraising instructor, David Levy, as he provides participants with tools necessary to introduce or enhance a major gifts effort as a part of a fundraising plan. Through discussion and simulation, you will explore the five steps of the development process and learn how to effectively engage donors.  During this session, you will gain a better understanding of how to use your existing resources to develop stronger relationships with your supporters and raise more money.
Participants will learn:
  • Key traits that a successful fundraiser must have
  • How to identify potential major donors and create a realistic prospect list
  • What to “say” and “do” on your first meeting with a prospective major donor
  • Why “thank you” are the most important words in the fundraising process
