Major Gift Academy: What You Need to Know

By April 14, 2016 March 1st, 2017 General Information

Ever since Veritus Group was created, our mission was to help non-profit leaders and development professionals like you become great at major gift fundraising. We saw too many good non-profits and major gift officers who were either losing donors to attrition or not challenging donors enough; they were leaving hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars behind, lost to the organization.

We didn’t think it had to be that way.

Over the years Veritus Group has been fortunate to work with dozens of great non-profits and hundreds of MGOs to help them create, build and manage major gift programs. We’ve helped development professionals and leaders like you see not only great short-term success, but have a solid structure in place for long-term growth, all built on the practice of developing real relationships with donors… which is what major gift fundraising is all about.

Along the way, we realized that some non-profits did not have the resources to engage us on a long-term basis, to work with their MGOs. With our mission to reach as many non-profits and MGOs as possible with “The Veritus Way” of being successful with major gifts, we decided to create training programs that use the best knowledge, experience and success we’ve accumulated over the years, and bring them to you at a reasonable cost anyone could afford — anyone who is serious about the long-term health of their organization and their own professional development. Thus Major Gift Academy was born!

Now Major Gift Academy is a one-stop-shop for major gift fundraising training. We have intensive, weeks-long courses for fundraisers and executives; we have shorter online trainings; we have one-to-one fundraising coaches; and we have on-site customized trainings for larger organizations or groups.
