Make Your Year-End Goals!

What if you knew you would make your major donor revenue goal this year? And what if you knew how you were going to do it?

Most likely, the holiday season is when your donors give more significantly than any other time of the year. Do you have a holiday goal and a clear strategic plan for each of your top donors? Or do you feel a bit frantic and scattered as you dash from one event to the next, trying to call and see donors in between – hoping it will all work out in the end, but not sure how you’ll get there?

For 15 years Veritus Group has been working with dozens of non-profits and hundreds of major gift officers. In that time, we have developed a step-by-step “End-of-Year Success Program” to assure that you end the year making or exceeding your revenue goals.

Once you complete our “End-of-Year Success Program” you will know…

  • Exactly which donors are your priority,
  • How to connect with them and inspire passion in your donors,
  • How to put the right offer in front of them and solicit them for a transformational gift, and
  • How to deal with their objections.

You’ll feel much more confident and clear. You will feel less scattered and worried. You will have a solid plan and know what you need to do to implement that plan.
