Leadership gift societies offer annual giving programs an efficient way to incentivize and recognize their most important donors. By establishing markers for what’s considered “leadership support”, they help to set expectations, encourage upgrades, and deliver meaningful and ongoing stewardship. When managed effectively, they also help increase donor satisfaction, retention, and giving each and every year.
