What challenges do you face today?
Major gift fundraising is one of most important pursuits you can undertake. But it’s also one of the most challenging!
Find the services YOU need.
Fundraising works best when you create lasting partnerships with your donors to help them change the world through their giving. Major donor programs accomplish this best when they have trained staff who qualify donors, make individual plans and goals for those donors, and are held accountable for carrying out those plans.

A national organization with too few major gift officers, 1/3 of existing donors were leaving each year. Veritus helped them build their staff and strengthen the donor pipeline.

News, Events and Featured Resources
In this Question of the Month video, Jeff shares about his experience as a donor meeting with a major gift officer for the first time.
You wouldn’t believe how often we talk to fundraisers who don’t ask at all! Asking is, as you can imagine, one of the most important parts of your job. And when you’re tuned in to your donor’s giving preferences and interests, you can bring them giving opportunities even outside of their regular giving season.
To help share more about the importance of asking and how to move yourself out of a transactional approach to giving, we invited two special guests, Sarah Coen-Frei, Senior Individual Giving Manager at Minnesota Public Radio, and Fritz Gutwein, Major Gift Officer at Bread for the World to join Veritus Group’s Karen Kendrick (Senior Director of Client Engagement) and Diana Frazier (Senior Client Experience Leader) for a conversation about how to approach asking year-round. We hope you find these tips helpful as you work toward your next donor asks!
