Studies consistently show that 85%-90% of giving in the United States each year comes from individuals. Yet we too often get distracted from the most important giving segment available. This course will address the critical topic of personal solicitation, with an emphasis on major gifts. Participants will learn how to prepare and deliver gift solicitations to individuals and will develop a specific proposal for a prospect whom they identify for their organizations.  The class ends with a mock major gift ask with a local fundraising professional serving as your “donor.”
