Are you unsure how to raise bigger individual gifts? Or need to improve your ability to ask existing donors to become bigger investors in your mission?

Are Board and staff members passionate advocates but reluctant askers? If so, this session is for you!

Join Alyce Lee Stansbury, CFRE, seasoned expert and certified Master Trainer in Fundraising, for a fun, highly interactive session designed to help your organization raise more money from individual gifts.

Alyce Lee will answer your burning questions and provide hands-on help for your less-than-successful asking experiences. She will share the critical steps involved in major gift fundraising, offer proven strategies for earning the right to ask, and explore the do’s and don’ts of the asking process. As Alyce Lee says, there’s no shortage of donors, only a shortage of askers!

Don’t miss this practical, hands-on session to help donors accomplish their goals by giving to your organization!

Participants will:

  • Determine how to define a major gift to your organization;
  • Learn ways to identify possible major gift donors;
  • Understand the steps involved in soliciting a major gift; and
  • Explore the role of Board and staff in this process.

Who should attend:     CEO/Executive Directors, Development staff, Board members
