There are five pathways to find major supporters: foundations, wealthy individuals, governments or companies.  Within these five routes, we’ll explore the balance between proactive and reactive fundraising.

We’ll share the results of study in 500+ case studies of major gifts to reveal five ways you can secure new major gifts and upgrade existing donors.  Do donors approach you, or do you have to hunt them down?  What are the techniques you need to have across your organization to ensure that all pathways are open?  We’ll move from case studies to practical solution within your own organization.

What you will learn

  • Understand the five pathways for securing a major gift
