Major Gifts

One core credit toward Revenue Development Certificate
One elective credit toward Nonprofit Leadership Certificate

This workshop is designed for those new to the field of revenue development, experienced fundraisers looking to implement new strategies, or anyone with a development aspect to his/her position.

Major gifts don’t happen right away. If it were as easy as introducing yourself to a potential donor and asking for a big gift of financial support for the programs and services of your nonprofit, we wouldn't need a workshop. But, there is a reason they call this "development." It is the process through which we identify, cultivate, solicit and steward the gifts from major investors in our organizations. Through this hands-on, interactive session, you will have the opportunity to learn and practice vital skills in each step of the development process – which leads to the successful solicitation of major gifts.

Through this workshop, participants will:
  • Identify current and potential major donors
  • Develop individual plans to cultivate major donors to position them to be asked for support
  • Practice asking major donors for gifts of financial support
