In the past several years, the art and science of best practiced-based major gift fundraising – whether for annual gifts, special efforts, or comprehensive campaigns – has dramatically changed the philanthropic landscape. Both large and small nonprofits that have embraced these new major gift fundraising strategies have benefited mightily. Many of these programs have successfully engaged their board members as active partners in the major gift process in a variety of ways that has enhanced their volunteer experience. This workshop will provide an up-to-date overview of current major gift fundraising insights from using donor motivation behavioral economics research and analytics to identify prospects to engagement and stewardship best practices. The workshop will include a three-act mock solicitation scenario performed by Evanston’s Mudlark Theater senior staff and volunteer leaders that is certain to educate and entertain as well as spark lively discussion and commentary.
