While many fundraisers and boards are intimidated by the idea of asking for Major Gifts, the truth is that any charity can raise Major Gifts, with the right approach. This enjoyable session with Rudy will give you and your team concrete and applicable ideas you can start right away. Bring your leadership. Bring your volunteers. Bring your questions and dilemmas. Whether you have been too intimidated to start Major Gifts, or a very experienced MG officer, you will leave with the inspiration to build or better your own Major Gifts program.

  • Answer questions and dilemmas

  • Ensure a basic understanding of Major Gift fundraising

  • Give concrete ideas about Major Gift fundraising
