Getting to the Heart of Major-Gifts Giving
So they give. They take the money they’ve earned through their own work, talent, skill and labor, and use it to fund your organization’s work, talent, skill and labor. Giving allows them to know they’re doing something significant. Filtering the money they earned doing their work into your organization’s work, no matter how much they give, makes their jobs — and their lives — more meaningful.
If you’re hanging with Richard it won’t be long before you’ll be laughing.
He always finds something funny in everything. But when the conversation is about people, their money and giving, you’ll find a deeply caring counselor who helps donors fulfill their passions and interests. Richard believes that successful major-gift fundraising is not fundamentally about securing revenue for good causes. Instead it is about helping donors express who they are through their giving. The Connections blog will provide practical information on how to do this successfully. Richard has more than 30 years of nonprofit leadership and fundraising experience, and is founding partner of the Veritus Group.
