This interactive workshop will help you uncover new ways to find, cultivate and close your major gifts.  Designed specifically for schools’ development professionals with some experience of major giving, the day will combine structured learning with role plays and optional peer review/support. 

Why should you attend?
You will learn about successful major gift fundraising in schools through examples and a review of the major gifts process.  You will then get to apply this knowledge to your school through the creation of a plan for one of your own prospects, benefiting from optional peer review and support in looking at how the plan might work in practice. 
Who should attend?
Schools’ development professionals with some experience of major gifts.
