Stories from the Road: Major Gifts Presented by Julie Fink, MS, CFRE
Speaker: Julie Fink, MS, CFRE Jefferson Health New Jersey
Storytelling is a key strategy for fundraising. Stories bring the data to life, they demonstrate cause and effect and they convey relatable messages. So let's hear some stories--stories as a major gift officer. Gain an understanding of the donor engagement process through the narratives of successfully secured major gifts and those that fell flat. This interactive session will offer insight into a prospect vs. a suspect, timing of the ask, navigating meetings that go off track, when a prospect "ghosts" you, and much more.
