Major Gift Strategies: There are many factors in a major gift request that are beyond our control, so we must control every factor that we can. Developing a major gift strategy for each key prospect will allow you to identify the most capable and ready prospects and determine the best approach. Being armed with a strategy, you will increase chances of success to secure the largest gift possible and open the door to your next request.
