I used to be terrified of scheduling visits.
When I first got started in major gifts, I was a 21 year old college student. I had no idea what I was doing, but was extremely passionate about the organization I was working for.
Over the next 7 years, I went on to more than 4x major gift revenue from the portfolio I was given accounting for over $5 Million in major gifts raised.
I quickly became seen as a leader in major gifts. I received significant raises every year, received dozens of offers to go lead major gift fundraising efforts for other organizations, and eventually started my own business teaching executives how to succeed at major gifts.
I tripled my income year 1 running my business, helped my clients close millions of dollars in gifts, and now have one of the top rated major gift podcasts in the country.
I love raising money, but what I’ve realized I love even more is leveraging my unique gifts to equip other gift officers and leaders of nonprofits to go past the boundary of what they thought was possible.
If you're anything like me when I got started in major gifts, you've often wondered how much money you're leaving on the table.
