      How do I get a meeting with my major gift prospects – particularly the ones who are wealthy donors? That’s a question everyone always wants to know- how to connect with the most wealthy donors on your prospect list. And it’s a difficult thing – to approach someone you don’t know every well for a personal visit. As a result, segmenting donors into relevant categories based on such factors as level of giving (or potential giving), donor type and key needs is the first step in donor relationship management.

    Donation request letters communicate your organization’s needs, give your recipients information about how they can help, and ask them to get involved. This type of fundraising letter is an optimal chance to share your story, show donors the impact they can make with a gift, and gain support for your mission.   Long-term giving could mean moving a donor into planned, recurring, or major gifts. Cumulative giving: Be sure to look at cumulative giving, not just the amount they give each year. A donor who gives $2, four times year tends to be more receptive .

    The key to continued success with major donors is to focus on the relationship, and to let the rest take care of itself. Keep them informed and show appreciation often. If you treat them like the heroes of your organization, that’s just what they’ll become. However, by intentionally and methodically communicating donor impact through sharing metric data and using individual stories of change made possible by your donors’ generosity, you substantially change the odds. Every story effectively shared, every statistic posted for your constituents to see establishes more credibility for your nonprofit.
