Many organizations talk about focusing on major gifts, and want to concentrate on major gifts, but never seem to move past an annual fund emphasis.

This 90-minute workshop will center on creating this mental and organizational shift and will be broken into two parts.

The first part: “So You’re Thinking About Major Gifts? How to Tell If You Have a Major Gift or Annual Fund Focused Program” will lead participants through a simple self-examination process to determine the actual objective of their development program.

The second part: “The Language of Respectful Philanthropy” will discuss the words to use, and not use, when having discussions with major gift prospects.

Join us for this information session as you work to shift your focus to a major gift mindset.

Who Should Attend:
Executive Directors, Board Members, and Fund Developers
