The Art of Asking

Understanding the anatomy of a major gift from identification to getting the appointment to securing the gift to stewardship

Understanding the anatomy of a major gift— from identification, to getting the appointment, to securing the gift, to stewardship. Major gifts come to the fundraisers and institutions that understand the vision and the dreams that motivate donors. Donors don’t wake up in the morning saying, “I want to give money away.” They give to programs that are bold, exciting, and make a difference. We explore a new paradigm in major gift fundraising. Most important, we explore what dramatic changes take place in your organization if major donors adopt this new paradigm.
