Are you having trouble implementing a major gifts program?
Creating an effective major gifts program at a small organization can be quite challenging.
In today’s video, Chris Megargee from Global Partnerships talks about the differences between large organization major gift programs and small nonprofits major gifts programs. Because Global Partnerships has a small development shop, they had to figure out what parts of a major gift program they could actually handle and what would work for them.
Chris gives you insight into what they did to create an effective major giving program, and how it actually saves them time and why it’s great for their donors.

Well done Chris! Very helpful for both the small and large shop. All the basics are pretty much the same.

This was interesting. But I think it’s really mislabeled. It may be the difference between major donor fundraising at a large versus a medium shop. But it’s very clear that he’s not describing anything that I would describe as a “small” nonprofit. Small nonprofits by definition don’t have Raiser’s Edge or a “team.” At most they have a single Dev. Director and you get a little of their time and a little of the Exec. Dir’s time for major donor fundraising.

Keeping on track and providing consistent touches for your major gift prospects and donors is key… and that is very hard in a small shop where each staff member may be wearing various hats. Thanks to Chris for sharing his insights.
