Major Gift Programs

We possess significant experience with developing or re-energizing major gift programs that fund general operations, programs, collections and exhibits, or equipment and technology improvements. We help our clients develop a brand for their major gift program, and we are actively involved in the identification, cultivation and solicitation of major gift donors, while providing effective advice on successfully stewardship strategies. Extensive prospect research is a core component of our work to ensure successful major gift programs. Effective major gift programs also create a community of loyal and recognized donors who may become future board candidates or capital campaign donors. In many cases, a nonprofit will focus on its major gift program before launching a capital campaign to recruit more high-capacity donors.
