Is your major donor pipeline full?

Do you have a stable of big donors you can count on to fund new projects, capital campaigns, and annual appeals?

Are your major donors constantly introducing you to new prospects?

If the answer to any of these questions is “no,” then I invite you to join me for The Fundraising Authority’s newest class: How to Find New Major Donors and Get Them to Give to Your Non-Profit.

Help Your Organization Find the Large Donors It Needs to Thrive

Far too many non-profits are stuck in the “fundraising rat race.”  These organizations are doing amazing work, but struggling with finding enough donors and prospects to really thrive.  Instead of being able to launch new programs, increase their capacity or build new facilities, these non-profits are stuck wondering where the next big check will come from… never sure whether or not they can find the major donors they need to thrive.

Does this describe your non-profit?  Do you need to find new major donors to help you carry out your work?  A strong base of major donor support is crucial to the success of every non-profit organization.

During this class, I want to help you overcome the fundraising rat race and develop a pipeline of major donors you can count on to not only make major gifts, but also to introduce your organization to their friends and colleagues who can likewise be cultivated for support.

What’s Included in the Class?

The goal for this class is to help you find new major donors for your non-profit, and get them to make major gifts.  The class will run for four weeks, from Monday, June 10th through Friday, July 5th.  The course is presented online, so you can learn from the comfort of your own home or office.  The classes will be posted on Monday of each week, but you can read and listen at your own leisure.

Every week, you will receive (by e-mail):

(1) A comprehensive written guide to that week’s topic that you can read on your computer, smartphone, tablet or e-reader, or print out at your leisure.  These guides are 7-10 PDF pages of course material that contain everything you need to know about that week’s topic.

(2) An engaging podcast seminar (15-20 minutes each) delving deeper into that week’s topic.  The podcasts will be presented in MP3 form and can be listened to on your computer, or on your iPod, smartphone, tablet or in your car.

If you’re not technologically savvy, that’s ok, we’ll include information on how to download and read/listen to the course materials.  And don’t worry, there aren’t any tests or quizzes in this class!

Learn at Your Own Pace with Lifetime Access

If you’re busy or need to skip a week or two, don’t worry, you can learn at your own pace.  With your class registration, you will gain lifetime access to the course materials, so you will be able to download, read, and listen to them at your own pace.

He has spent the past 20 years helping organizations rapidly grow their fundraising operations.  He has personally raised tens of millions of dollars both on staff and as a consultant to fundraising organizations, and is offering this course to help your non-profit raise the major donor dollars it needs to thrive.

No non-profit can truly prosper without a strong major donor strategy.  Imagine how much stronger your development efforts will be with an ever-growing pipeline of new, qualified, energized major donors joining your team.
