Major Gift Fundraising for Nonprofits

Getting to YES: Best Practices for Major Gift Fundraising (In-person)

Carina Kleter

  • October 6, 2022
    8:30 am - 12:30 pm EST

Asking for and receiving major gifts is the most cost-effective way to raise money. Too often, staff and board members don’t know how, are overwhelmed by the process or too afraid to ask. If this sounds familiar, this workshop is for you. Alyce Lee Stansbury, CFRE, fundraising expert and popular NLC instructor, will help you build authentic relationships with donors, earn the right to ask, and ensure individual giving is a thriving part of your fundraising program — even during the most challenging fundraising climates.

After this course, you will:

  • Understand donor motivations and how they influence giving;
  • Be able to distinguish the roles of the fundraising team; and
  • Learn proven methods to prepare for and successfully ask for gifts.

This training is best for executive directors, development staff with intermediate or advanced experience, major gifts officers, your board chair and development committee members.

Safety and Health Protocols for In-Person Classes

The safety and health of all visitors, students, trainers and staff is our top priority.

The Nonprofit Leadership Center is taking necessary precautions to ensure the safety of guests and participants for all in-person training sessions:

  • We are following all federal health and safety guidelines, as well as guidance from state and local governments. Depending on the community spread of COVID-19, this may include protocols such as wearing face coverings and social distancing. Registrants will receive an email from NLC one week prior to each in-person training session that outlines specific protocols to expect on the event day.
  • We are using enhanced protocols and practices to keep our Training Room healthy and safe.
  • Training Room capacity is limited to ensure proper distancing.
  • Any person who is feeling unwell or suspects they have been exposed to contagious illness is asked to refrain from attending in-person training events. If you are not feeling well on the day of your training or are aware of exposure (within the previous 10 days) to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, we ask that you cancel or reschedule your visit with us, whether or not you appear to be experiencing symptoms of illness. If you need to cancel for this reason, please notify us, and we will be happy to provide program credit equivalent to the registration fees already paid.

Please note: In-person training events are subject to be changed to virtual (via Zoom), rescheduled or canceled depending on current CDC guidelines and/or state and local government recommendations as the date of the training approaches. If such a change is required, registrants will be notified in advance.
