Participants of this workshop will learn the importance of integrating the science of major gift portfolio management with the art of relationship-based giving to freshen your approach to securing major gifts. Attendees will learn techniques and relationship-building tools to impactfully engage with donors and strengthen major gift opportunities. The information shared will help professionals approach their major gifts programs differently in a way that builds alignment, community, and joy.

This workshop is ideal for nonprofits that engage with prospective donors in hopes of securing major gifts for their organization. Board members are encouraged to attend, as it is highly recommended that board members be actively involved in opening doors for staff, introducing prospective donors to the organization, and encouraging major gifts from community members.
