Major Gifts Part 1

Here we go. This is the meat and potatoes about understanding pretty much everything about what major gifts for an org is all about. It's gamified! You get to identify, nurture, and make an ask. You’re allowed to take each of the five game segments up to three times. (Approx. 10-hr course)

Major Gifts Part 2 (Coming Fall 2022)

Here you will learn to understand where to place individuals from your own portfolio and construct a detailed strategy for each– because, after all, not everyone is the same. Oh, and of course – practice interacting with them. Don't miss out on this gamified experience!

Grassroots Fundraising (Coming January 2023)

Work for a small organization? Here's where you can practice with some of your toughest challenges. We already have a Boston-based team organizing and planning for this great endeavor. We're still finishing up the game interactivity, stay tuned!

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (Coming Summer 2022)

We are cooking up something important to add to the conversation. We know this topic is hard to navigate for non-profits. This matters to us and we know it matters to you. We will be offering an interactive self-evaluation and an information clearing house to keep learning.

Live Major Gifts Training

Think we forgot about how good live training is, especially when we do it all gamified? It's pretty exciting. Problem was it didn't scale it. It's only for a maximum group of 20 and requires two full days. It's worth it! Pretty wow experience.

While coaching is well known in the areas of sports, politics and in the executive suite, coaching is now widely available to people at all levels regardless of their chosen career. We carefully select our coaches based on their coaching training and experience, and also on their life experience.  

A coach helps the coachee explore their options and resources, and supports them in their intent to take action – and may become their accountability partner!  

Of course, if you just want help figuring out which coach might be a good fit for you – or you really wanted a particular coach who just isn’t available – reach out to our Director of Coaching to discuss. There to help you, any time.
