Increasing the Board’s Focus on Major Gifts During COVID19 and Moving Forward

The pandemic is providing a new impetus to change our obsession with fundraising events and look to a more transformative model to secure the resources needed for charitable missions.

Today Manatee Community Foundation chatted with national fund development consultant Janet Cady to share how board members can be more engaged in major gift fundraising. We were joined by staff and volunteer leaders from nonprofit organizations around the country for this candid conversation, filled with examples, stories and knowledge.

A leader in philanthropy for more than 25 years, Jan’s expertise encompasses board development, major and principal gifts, campaign strategy, foundation modeling, and coaching/training for chief development officers, CEOs, senior foundation staff and major gift officers.
