Major donors: a fundamental fundraising sector

This showcase is produced in partnership with I.G. Advisors.

Major donor fundraising is one of the most important but delicate areas of the fundraiser's profession. This showcase will equip you with all the tools you need to become a truly successful major donor fundraiser. 

We have a wealth of case studies that travel through time and around the world, from Germany to Turkey via the USA and Canada, to share great examples of inspirational major donor campaigns. We also provide insight and expertise from some of the greatest fundraisers in the world via articles and thought pieces. And to cap it off, there's project 9 of the Commission on the Donor Experience, which focused on this very area of fundraising.

Of course, we will constantly be adding to this showcase with more great content, and feel free to contact joe@sofii.org if you think you have similar great case studies or articles you would like to contribute.

This showcase is a gold mine - feel free to dig away!
