Virtual Gift Officers

Recorded On: 12/18/2018


When it comes to developing relationships with donors, nothing beats a face-to-face meeting. Direct engagement can not only drive increased support, but it can also provide valuable insight to inform prospect identification and qualification. But small teams, limited budgets, and geography often prevent advancement programs from reaching some of their most important supporters in person. One way to address these challenges is to empower gift officers to focus on phone and email engagement, allowing for personal interactions that meet organizational capability while ensuring that donors remain connected with your institution.

Register now for your entire team to learn how to develop a virtual gift officer program for your annual fund.
