WEBINAR: Six-Figure Fundraising: How to Create and Run Your First $100,000+ Major Gifts Campaign

June 12, 2014 | 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

| Presenter:   Sandy Rees, CFRE |

If you’re like most people working with a small nonprofit, raising a big chunk of money for a special project, program, or piece of equipment can be a daunting challenge. You may be puzzled about where to start or how to do it. You’re probably scratching your head over who to approach and how much to ask for. And you’re probably wondering exactly what to say to get someone to make a large donation to your organization. Join us for this interactive session to learn exactly what to do to create and run your first really big fundraising campaign. You’ll learn how to plan the campaign, the tools and materials you’ll need, and how to find the best people to ask for a gift. You’ll leave feeling hopeful and more confident about raising big money.

At the conclusion of this session, participants will understand:

  • How to plan a six-figure fundraising campaign, including creating a gift table
  • How to create a simple case for support that answers questions a donor might have about the project
  • How to identify “diamonds in the rough” (people who have already given to your organization but have the capacity to give much, much more)
  • How to build relationships on purpose without feeling manipulative, sleazy or slimy

Target Audience
This presentation is ideal for professional fundraisers who are new to major gift fundraising. It’s not meant for startup nonprofits, nonprofits with no donor base, or organizations who are experienced in raising money from major donors.
