The Art and Science of Transformational Gifts

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Major gifts fundraising is not simply about asking for larger amounts of money. To do it well requires a sound philosophy, the willingness to adapt culture, a commitment to learning and utilizing best practices, and the support of the entire organization. The aim of this session is to reframe the way you think about major and principal gifts fundraising, with transformational giving being the primary goal.

You will be able to:

1. - Identify the difference between transactional and transformational fundraising

2. - Find new and creative ways to understand the passions and interests of each donor

3. - Understand the power of personalized donor experience plans
