Getting Your Piece of the Pie: Individual Giving

Monday, May 6, 2013  
9:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Everyone knows that the majority of charitable gifts come from individuals, and yet we continue to devote disproportionate amounts of time to seeking foundation grants and planning events. Maureen Mahoney Hill, CFRE, will discuss building stability and sustainability into your fundraising program by focusing on growing individual giving with a data-based approach.

Takeaways will include:

• Understanding when a development audit can be helpful in improving an individual giving program and how to complete one.
• Learning the basics of a comprehensive individual giving program – understanding the existing donor base, establishing appeals and regular communications and prospecting.
• Techniques for identifying major/planned gift prospects and planning and completing calls/visits to cultivate and solicit gifts.
• An understanding of the importance of creating a culture of giving within an organization.
