How Events Can Ruin a Major-Gifts Program
No, I am not against events. Put simply, I am against anything that gets you off of that very special, and rather mystical, thing that happens when you have connected with a major donor; you have discovered her passion and interest, and you have the opportunity to fulfill that passion and interest through her giving to your good cause.
I'm for serving donors outrageously.
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.
