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:
- Asking for advice.
- Offer alternatives for the timing of the meeting.
- 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.
