Major Projects Require Major Giving Initiatives

Are your computers hopelessly outdated? Has your school playground seen better days? Would a brighter, cozier visitor’s lounge bring comfort to families waiting to hear the outcome of a loved one’s surgery?

Major gifts are transformational

Nonprofits cannot afford to be complacent in their fundraising efforts. In times of government funding cutbacks, natural disasters or other unforeseen emergency situations, major gifts can make the difference in allowing your organization to continue to make a difference in the lives of others. Major projects require major gifts from benefactors.

The good news is Major Donors may Already be Contributors!
