Finding, connecting with- and Fundraising from wealthy individuals is one of the most amazing forms of Fundraising. Supporting these individuals, family, and / or couples to realise their philanthropic ambitions gives both the charity and the individuals in question an excellent opportunity to make the world a little better. Recruiting Great Gifts is largely based on gut-feeling, and in practice, expectations and results do not always match. Building such relationships is always tailor-made, but still, it comes down to a good plan, thorough research, clear communication between the organization and the wealthy individuals and, finally, to ask for a contribution for the right project at the right time, requested by the right person. In the Major Donor Support module I am keen to share my knowledge, insights and experience with you. This can be done in different ways, depending on need/wishes and the phase of MD Fundraising the organization is in.
