Relationships cannot be rushed. Here’s a story of how one fundraiser connected with a donor and inspired a transformational gift.
Remember, a donor’s gift is much more than just the money or the amount.
If you’re in the middle of a campaign, this is a great opportunity for you to cultivate donor relationships so that you don’t see those massive dips in revenue when the campaign is over.
You can find one or two major donor in your caseload who can give a transformational gift this year – IF you identify them now and cultivate them properly.
If you qualify, cultivate, steward and serve your donors well, these are the only three ways you’ll grow your portfolio.
MGOs and their organizations need to get their acts together before they can expect donors to give large – and potentially transformational – gifts.
