A remarkable economic shift has occurred in the U.S. over the past five years -- one that already impacts your major gift efforts, whether you know it or not.

This shift, that has dramatically transformed the classic rules of fundraising, has occurred among high net worth individuals.

Successful major gift fundraising requires that we refocus our major gift efforts.

Who Should Attend: Capital campaign directors, major gift officers, campaign cabinet members, major gift chairs, anyone contemplating a capital campaign or a seeking major gifts.

You get:

  • A new understanding of where – and how – to focus in both major gift and annual fundraising.
  • How to identify the wealthiest of the wealthy within your constituency.
  • A new understanding of how to be even more successful with major donors.
  • How statistics are used to cloud the economic picture.
