Major gifts are crucial to many fund development plans, regardless of an organization’s mission or scope. But they don’t just happen. Building strong relationships with donors with the inclination and capacity to make major gifts is key. But who are those donors? How do you get from identifying to engaging?

This session will provide tips on securing visits with potential major gifts donors and delivering powerful messages about your organization that encourage donors to say “yes.” We will help attendees build their confidence by discussing great questions to ask during the visit, and how and when to ask so they feel prepared when they get to “the ask”!
