Every day you feel the pressure. You are being asked to raise more money with fewer resources. You have too many metrics and too few quality prospects. The pandemic continues to make visiting with donors problematic. You can’t get anyone to call you back. You love your role as a gift officer but you wonder how you will be successful.
Do any of these scenarios sound familiar? We understand, and you are not alone.
In this webinar, presented by the Gonser Gerber Institute and partner Jason McNeal, we will discuss the challenging role today’s gift officers face. Based on our firm’s experience with major gift programs, especially in light of what we’ve learned over the last 2 years, Jason will offer advice on how to navigate through the most difficult aspects of your work, your career, and interactions with donors. He will discuss how to achieve success in trying situations and how best to manage expectations; for you, your supervisor, and your institutional leaders.
If you are a gift officer and feel stressed, stifled, or even stagnated, this is the program for you. Come share your questions with us so that you and your peers can get the tools you need to be lifted up, motivated and productive.
