A major gift is defined differently for each organization – for some it might be $100, for others $100,000 or more. But no matter how you define major gifts, landing them is a top priority for a successful fundraising program. In this webinar, we will talk about who gives major gifts, who is the best “asker,” and what you need to have in place to build your major gifts program. Making the ask is the scariest part of getting major gifts for many people, so we’ll help you with that too.

Please join Linda Lysakowski as she discusses how to prepare an ideal donor profile so you can spend your time on the donors most likely to give a major gift and stop wasting time on those that are DOA and who will never give a major gift. PLUS! We’ll teach you about strategies to manage your pipeline of major donor prospects by tracking donor moves, a new way to look at moves management.


Just a sampling of what this webinar will cover:

  • Who are prospects for major gifts?
  • How do you find them?
  • Cultivation techniques
  • Solicitation strategies
  • Donor moves—why they’re more important than moves management
