A major gift is a big gift. How big depends on your organization and the state of your fundraising efforts. In this introductory workshop, you’ll polish the skills required to take your individual fundraising strategies to the next level. We’ll help you define what “major gift” means for your organization and cover the strategies you need to secure them.

Participants will learn to:

  • Utilize the cycle of donor relations
  • Conduct prospect evaluation sessions
  • Create a cultivation plan
  • Create solicitation strategies based on donor motivation
  • Maximize gift results


This workshop is ideal for nonprofit professionals who are responsible for securing donations from individuals and are new to major gifts.

Full participation in Cultivating Major Gifts is applicable for 3 points in Category 1.B – Education of the CFRE International application for initial certification and/or recertification.
