A Few Thoughts
Frequently Asked Questions
Major gifts and planned giving are a natural addition to your fundraising strategy. Here are answers to common questions we receive when it comes to gifts, grants, and giving.
Where can I find major gift donors?
Take a look at your existing database and see if you have any information that would indicate the capacity for a major gift. This could be a history of increasing donations or an association with a philanthropic organization. Look to business leaders who support your mission and can offer corporate partnerships or matching gifts. Often, major gifts are under your nose, and you simply have to look at your donor database with a discerning eye.
What are the best practices for successful major giving efforts?
While it’s important to do your research on your database as you look for different giving and grant opportunities, it’s equally important that you plan out your campaign or application process. Tools that automate this, like CharityEngine, will save you time and energy, and offer your nonprofit a greater chance of success with your giving efforts.
How do I keep gift-givers engaged?
Creating a donor stewardship plan will deepen your connection with donors and outline a communications plan to keep your gift-givers engaged. Through automated emails and consistent outreach, you will be able to maximize your goodwill and empower donors to make a big difference.
