    LIVE WEBINAR: Mission Possible: Get in the Door & Get What You Came For

    From getting the visit to getting the gift, this step-by-step talk will outline what you need to do to make effective use of your time on donor visits, and eventually get the gift you came for. Learn proven strategies, guiding principles, and tips to help you help your organization. These principles are pulled from the latest research in social psychology and human dynamics. The strategies and tips I cover are road-tested and pulled from 'what works' in hundreds of real-life prospect visits. This session will give you the language and the confidence so you too can 'have them at hello.'
     

    Learning Objectives:

    • Understand how you set up a donor visit for success
    • Learn principles for effective cultivation that drives toward an ask
    • Understand the social science principles that help make it more likely your prospect will want to say yes to a gift.

    This is an offer to an organization that's wanting to start a planned giving program with a mentor available 20 hours/week for one year.

    The stipend would be very modest.

    The mentor is a proven planned giving specialist for a fraction of what it would cost to hire someone to do planned giving.

    There is also a possibility to mentor an organization's Development Director during this year so that he/she could continue with planned giving.

    Send all inquiries/interest to the administrative office of the Planned Giving Round Table of Arizona:  info@pgrtaz.org
