8:15 AM - 9:20 AM: Breakout 1
Never Solicit Another Gift
Co-presented by two long time chief philanthropy officers, this session will challenge the traditional thinking of every major gift officer -- inspiring you to evolve into an understanding that top performers no longer "solicit gifts" but instead successfully inspire and facilitate philanthropic partnerships.
Move from cultivation to engagement; transition from soliciting to inviting; learn to form successful philanthropic partnerships as opposed to merely closing gift.
If we are to become increasingly relevant in our not-for-profit organizations, our frame of reference for the important work we do in philanthropy must change. Let us teach you how to adopt a contemporary viewpoint, a more collaborative management style and a refreshing approach that philanthropic investors will warmly embrace.
