Develop a major donor program

What you think you need: A rich person’s rolodex

What you actually need:

  • A contact database that tracks donor interactions, detailed personal information, and reminds you when to follow-up
  • Staff (or volunteers) who enjoy working with people one-on-one or in small groups and have lots of time to dedicate to meeting with people
  • Strong storytelling about your mission and organization that showcase different kinds of success
  • Well-connected community advocates who understand your funding priorities
  • Patience (sorry, it’s true)

Need help getting what you actually need? Contact us.
