Demystifying the Major-Gift Plan
Build a Process to Grow and Inspire Major Givers

How do you know when someone is ready to make a major gift and how do you ask? Most ministries have a long list of faithful champions who give of their time and financial resources. How do you use this list to take meaningful action? And how can Christian ministries engage champions in a way that inspires connection in meaningful, relationship-building ways?

Whether you’re just beginning your major gifts effort, or you’re looking to strengthen relationships with your key champions, this workshop will have rich information for you. Join us to learn how to:

  • Develop a discipleship posture toward major gifts work
  • Build a major gifts team
  • Cultivate a connection with givers and effectively track their ability and readiness
  • Ask for major gifts in one-on-one meetings and train others to do it too
  • Integrate a deliberate prayer effort into your major gifts program

This workshop will benefit your entire team. Attending with you could be a great next step for key givers or board members! Major Gifts is among our most requested topics, so register today!
