Custom On-Site Trainings and Coaching

Custom On-Site Trainings

A number of organizations are approaching training by sending their MGOs through some or all of an online course, then bringing in a custom on-site training to ensure that learning is integrated into their particular organizational needs. When you hire Veritus Group’s MGA team for an on-site training, you work with MGA staff to create and determine the outcomes of that on-site training. Each training is led by an experienced Veritus Group member who tailors the experience to your needs. Learn more…


Major Gift Academy also offers group and individual phone and web-conference coaching, where you work with an experienced member of the Veritus team to address your specific areas where growth is needed. The timing and pace of the coaching is tailored to meet your schedule.
