This session is for executive directors and development staff who want to raise significantly more money for their organization by making the leap into major gifts fundraising, but haven't had the courage or know-how to get started. Most nonprofit professionals are not effectively soliciting major gifts for their organizations. If you want to start or grow your individual giving/major gifts program, this session is for you. Whether a major gift for your organization is $1,000 or $10,000, you will learn how ask and receive more major gifts this year.
