Do you know how many donors are moving into major gifts a year? It’s likely not as many as you could have. If you’re like most organizations, you have a clog in your pipeline that is causing donors to be stuck in mid-level. Creating a mid-level program is one of the best, most productive, strategies you can employ to strengthen your donor pipeline, move more donors into major gifts, and increase net revenue.
