Major gift fundraising isn’t just about securing large donations; it’s about fostering long-term connections, understanding the power of philanthropy, and realizing the substantial impact that committed individuals can have on the causes they hold dear.
According to Double the Donation, 85% of the average nonprofit’s revenue comes from gifts of $1,000 or more. This means high-net-worth individuals or corporations can have a transformational effect on a nonprofit’s mission. Finding, stewarding, and celebrating these powerful community members is an important step in mission fulfillment.
