Claire's 9 ways to get the major donor visit

Getting a donor to see you might actually be the hardest part of your job. 
In fact, some fundraisers feel that, once they get the meeting set, they are 80% of the way there!
Thanks to Claire Axelrad, here’s some help.
She’s provided 9 useful, proven strategies for getting the major donor visit on her blog.
Here are my favorites (below) but you’ll want to check out her blog for the rest:

  1. Asking for advice.
  2. Offer alternatives for the timing of the meeting.
  3. Don’t ask if you can drop by to tell them what your organization is doing.

I’d also add: Ask them about them, their needs, and their dreams.
