Developing Major Gifts Now and in the Future
The current trend of integrating planned and major gift efforts creates an opportunity for gift development professionals to help interested donors maximize their giving both now and in the future. The result may well be a “blended gift,” or one that is partially current and partially deferred (over time or at a later date).
Understanding what, how and why people give is the first step to increasing larger gifts at your organization. This session will examine various aspects of the philanthropic process from both the donor’s and recipient’s point of view, and will include characteristics of those capable of making larger gifts.
We invite all organizations to encourage all executive directors, board members, development committee members, and staff at all levels to take advantage of this program amongst peers as we get close to National Philanthropy Day and celebrating the passion we all have for doing good in this world.Presenter's Bio
