Training Overview

Stop focusing on one potential big donor. Learn how to win more major gifts this summer.

As you move into the summer fundraising season and many nonprofits close their fiscal years, now is an ideal time to win major gifts. Tax refunds are waiting to be spent, and prospective donors are motivated by new hope.

Your board members or colleagues may occasionally say, “Oh, that person has immense capacity. We should get them to support us. Then our fundraising will be easy!” But – has that person ever indicated they care about your cause?

Instead of focusing on one potential big donor, create a plan and look at all your current donors to identify who might be willing to support your organization with a major gift. From there, qualify, cultivate, and ask.
