AFP Webinar: Clear Communication is the Key to Major Gifts

When:  Apr 3, 2024 from 01:00 PM to 02:00 PM (ET)

1:00-2:00 PM Eastern | Presenter: Wayne Olson

There is only one skill that separates successful major gifts officers from others. It is communication. Great ones know what to say, how to say it and when to say it. Together, we will learn what major donors expect from us, and how we can work with them to maximize their loyalty and giving. After this webinar you will be equipped to communicate more clearly with individuals and in your marketing messages.
