Major Giving & Capital Campaigns 101 Seminar

Major Giving & Capital Campaigns 101 Seminar
Item# MG101-Seminar


If your institution or organization is considering a capital campaign, large or small, this seminar will help you in the most critical phase: before the campaign ever kicks off and before the first dollar is solicited.

Successful capital campaigns not only provide significant funds to improve facilities and enlarge endowments, they also help an institution or organization take stock of itself.

No capital campaign on the horizon? Then, come to this seminar to develop and improve your major gifts program.

Past seminar participants have said:

"This is my third seminar -- they are always great!"
