Standout Training from Seasoned Professionals 

At its core, long-term success as a development officer is about the deep relationships you develop with your donors. In order to build those relationships, you must possess a confident and versatile understanding of major giving.

  • Learn the Craft: Learn the nuts and bolts of major giving and, in so doing, increase your personal value as a development professional
  • Become Donor-focused: Build mutually beneficial and meaningful relationships with your donors
  • Go Beyond Cash: Become knowledgeable and comfortable talking with your donors about asset-based and planned gifts
