What you will learn

Session II: Jobs in Major Gifts

"You can't save the world if you can't pay the rent." Morton Blackwell

The Leadership Institute in partnership with America's Future is bringing you a six-part fundraising series taught by the best fundraisers in the movement!

In session two, you will learn about the career of major gifts and solicitation and answer the question "how can I make a career out it fundraising". Major gift officers have the unique opportunity to communicate and build relationships directly with the donor. Not only does it require a heart for the non-profit's mission, but also a heart for people.

Join AF and LI Wednesday, June 29th at 12:30-1:30PM EST and set up your career in major gifts fundraising!
