Building a Successful Major Gifts Program

Moving Your Donors to Major Gifts All fundraisers know they need more major gifts. In a packed room at our recent presentation at the 2017 North Carolina Philanthropy Conference, moss+ross offered a variety of tools to support fundraisers to get those major gifts. The handouts from that session (linked below) offer guidance about creating a major gifts program and step-by-step strategies for soliciting major gifts and managing a program.

National Philanthropy Day in the Triangle

Mary and Susan were honored to host Barker French and David Reese from East Durham Children’s Initiative (EDCI) at our table for AFP’s National Philanthropy Day on November 12. Barker represents the very best qualities in a fundraising volunteer, and we were proud to nominate him for the Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser recognition. Barker has a passion for working with the poorest children in Durham. In 2008 he envisioned a community partnership similar to the Harlem Children's Zone with the goal of preparing East Durham's children for college or a career. As a result of his hard work and vision EDCI was launched in 2009 with a mission to create a pipeline of quality services for children and families in a 120 block area of East Durham.

The 2014 NC Philanthropy Conference gathered hundreds of development professionals last week at the Durham Convention Center. moss+ross co-founders Mary Moss and Susan Ross, and senior associate Chuck Fyfe gave a presentation that promised to make everyone’s life more organized – and who doesn’t need that?!
