Ensuring that Major Gift Officers are uniquely stewarding their donors can be a tricky task. We will talk about strategizing ways to encourage frontline fundraisers to factor stewardship into their long-term plans and run comprehensive portfolio reviews to refresh and re-engage. We will also explore the role Prospect Management staff and policies play in ensuring stewardship of an organization’s best prospects. Join us as we share our unique perspectives to major gift donors from donor relations and relationship management angles.
