Major Donors: Love the one you're with

This event has finished.

4:30pm | Wednesday October 17 2018


International trends in New Zealand and in most western philanthropic environments are highlighting repeatedly that the current giving environment is flat.

While on one hand, this accentuates the demand for excellence in acquisition and retention of new donors, it also highlights the demands for bringing about the most favourable outcomes from your current donors.

In this presentation you will receive clarity on the imperatives of achieving the best possible outcomes from your existing donors, including how you can achieve significant success with major donors.

Giving Architects are recognised as experts in fundraising throughout New Zealand and in Australia. Capital Campaigns, major donor programmes, organisational development, impact measurement, management and reporting and social impact investment are well established strengths and their knowledge and understanding of the wider philanthropic environment is rare.
