Leadership gift societies (also known as gift clubs) offer advancement programs an efficient way to recognize and engage their most generous donors. By establishing markers for leadership support, they incentivize higher levels of giving, offer a construct for personalizing donor communications, and provide a vehicle for delivering ongoing stewardship. When managed effectively, they help increase donor satisfaction, retention, and overall fundraising each and every year.
