There is no question that the giving percentage of your faculty and staff is reflective of how valuable your closest constituents see you. This percentage can impact giving by your boards, alumni, parents, foundations and corporations. So if this group of donors is so important, then why is it so hard to get them to give?
This program will cover the importance of participation from your faculty and staff, explore new ways to approach these prospects, help you make your case to encourage their giving, and share real-world examples of how successful institutions have turned around their faculty and staff participation for the betterment of their institutions. Topics that we will cover include:
- Rethinking our Faculty and Staff Campaigns
- Why Faculty and Staff Giving is so Important
- Making Your Case with Faculty and Staff
- How to Make Your Campaign Succeed
- Stewardship of Your Faculty and Staff
