Attendees have said…

“Best Major Gifts training I have had!”

“This was undeniably the best major gift training I’ve attended in the last six years. Theory and practice of identifying, cultivating, and closing major gifts; both were covered compactly with an industry-pioneering use of quantitative measures to “right size” portfolios and set up practitioners for success.”

“I wish I would have had this training when I was starting out. Included thought-provoking and refreshing session on Engaging Physicians in the philanthropic effort.”
