Limited Capacity seats available

As someone who is responsible for securing major gifts, you are expected to be building relationships. But are you stuck behind your desk? Are you spending hours prospecting and researching? Are you working on spreadsheets and inputting call reports?

If so, you are not major gift fundraising. Building relationships require face to face interactions and this means you need to be out in the community. Sharing inspiration and passion cannot occur by e-mail or in a proposal, this requires storytelling and engagement. And this can only occur when you are in the presence of another individual. In this session, you will begin to understand what is holding you back from meeting your donors. You will hear stories of how gifts have been secured without all of the paperwork. You will learn how successful you can be by setting up your workstation outside of your office space.

Learning Outcomes
1. Understand the reasons why you are stuck behind your desk.
2. Based on the discussed techniques, you will have a renewed sense of passion for reaching out to your prospects/donors.
3. Understand the underlying motivation of major gift donors.
4. Tap into a donor's passion for changing the world.
