Even when times are bad, individuals contribute more than 75% of the $295 billion given annually to nonprofits. No nonprofit can afford to miss the opportunities that individual giving offers and whether a major gift to your organization means $500 or $5,000, your individual giving program should have a unique strategy for major donors.

This class will cover the various approaches to individual giving, from the annual appeal to a major donor personal solicitation. You will develop the tools and techniques that will help you create a comprehensive, coordinated fundraising program for individuals, including understanding the individual’s relationship to your organization, identifying strategies for each approach, how to be donor-focused while meeting your organization’s financial needs, and coordinating cultivation, solicitation and stewardship activities that lead to successful campaigns. Role play will solidify your confidence in being able to solicit donors as an essential part of your nonprofit professional development.
