Face Time: Relationship Philanthropy
A Resource for Canadian Major Gift Fundraising
The first comprehensive resource on major gift fundraising in Canada, FACE TIME will help both practitioners and volunteers understand how to achieve professional excellence in the stewardship of supporters, secure genuine and lasting relationships with major donors through 'high-touch' relationship philanthropy, and succeed in their greater goal of helping people benefit others through philanthropy.
Beginning with the principles of a major gift program, the author reviews the major gift fundraising cycle, the donor pyramid, relationships, all aspects of prospect management and research. Then he looks at sources of gifts, cultivation, solicitation and stewardship. Chapters on planned giving, volunteer leadership and diversity round out his system, and he closes with the results of a survey of trends in major gifts.
