A major gift is a big gift. How big depends on your organization and the state of your fundraising efforts. In this intermediate 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.

Prerequisite: Creating a Theory of Change, Introduction to Individual Giving

A working theory of change is key to all of the skills taught in our nonprofit management programs so we encourage participants to 1) bring a current theory of change or logic model to relevant workshops, or 2) attend a Creating a Theory of Change workshop before attending any other of our nonprofit management programs. If you’re unable to do either, please take some time in advance of your chosen workshop to consider your own program or organization’s purpose and goals. You may find a useful resource.
