The Transformational Power of Major Gifts (Virtual)

Organizations around the country rely on major gifts to fuel programmatic expansion and greater impact on mission. Whether in a campaign or working on a dedicated project, the most transformational funds are raised through the cultivation of major gifts. Please join CCS Fundraising for a webinar exploring giving trends and the request of significant philanthropic support.

Through case studies, best practices, and strategies in action, this session aims to engage attendees in a collaborative discussion on:

  • Preparing your development office to secure major and transformational gifts
  • Identifying, cultivating, and stewarding major donors while still navigating the pandemic
  • Diversifying your major donor pipeline
  • Managing and engaging new major donors

This is a free event sponsored by our partner, CCS Fundraising, and is available to members and nonmembers.
