Transformational gifts from donors don’t happen overnight. They take long-term planning, goal-setting, and the involvement of lots of people.
Spend time to these find donors, then create a bold plan to ask big. Spend a great deal of time with them, proportionately, more than other donors.
Have you identified 2-3 donors to your nonprofit who can give a transformational gift? Are you cultivating them toward a transformational gift?
Truly transformational #majorgifts from #donors will take a lot of time and planning. But it will pay off for both the nonprofit and the donor when done right.
Buried in your caseload of donors are one or two people who can give a transformational gift to your organization. The primary reason they haven’t done so is because you haven’t asked them to.
Many non-profits don’t have a vision for long-term growth, and they get frustrated when they don’t see massive gains in revenue from new major gifts work within 6 to 12 months.
