How to develop a gift range chart and customized gift strings to maximize your year-end giving efforts.

So, do you think that gift range charts are for capital campaigns or significant fundraising efforts only?

  • Develop a gift range chart for your specific fundraising goal
  • Provide some concrete suggestions on how you can begin to immediately use this fundraising tool to focus your efforts on having the greatest immediate impact

  • How to find and vet a philanthropic job opportunity to ensure a good “cultural” fit.
  • How to create and use a professional development plan to elevate your fundraising career
  • How to move into fundraising leadership, with or without previous experience
  • How to use social media to create value and to position yourself in the “market”

In order to advance in your fundraising and development career, you need the right mix of experience and education.  Deciding where you are headed will determine the type of relevant experiences that are most important, how to obtain them, and how education and networking plays a role.
