A robust major gift program begins with a strong mid-level giving program. Building your annual gift pipeline will include connecting with new donors, good stewardship, willing leadership volunteers, informative data and a strong organizational plan. Learn from two public garden fundraising professionals on how they are building a sustainable major gifts program across generations, from the Silent Generation to Millennials. This session focuses on working with volunteers, recruiting new annual fund supporters, building sustainable relationships and managing the major gift process. Be sure to bring your major gift pipeline questions for an informal Q&A session.
