For Better Result Break the Pattern: Control the Process and Maximize Your Donor Relationships
It’s not uncommon for us to talk to major gift fundraisers who aren’t as comfortable fundraising as they would like to be and/or struggle to differentiate themselves in a way that produces results. This interactive presentation explores creating a low pressure way to connect with potential donors instead of traditional fund raising techniques that result in a “you chase” and “they hide” dynamic. We’ll talk about some of the challenges non-profits face in that dance with donors and discuss counter-intuitive approaches based on the Sandler philosophy to uncover the potential donor's passions, capacity, and decision-making process for a mutually beneficial long-term relationship.
