A Challenge Gift is often seen as a win – win – win for our annual fund programs: our donors are inspired to make their first or increased gift since it will count for double or more toward their giving capacity, and the seed funding donor is given great recognition for their match and generosity, while our organization receives more funding to support our missions!
These are all excellent reasons to launch a challenge gift at your organization!
In this Gonser Gerber Institute “Quick Bite” program, Tyson Pinion, Gonser Gerber Senior Consultant, will share some immediate steps you can implement to launch a challenge gift at your institution, including establishing how a challenge gift can help where you need it most, cultivating and stewarding a challenge seed fund donor, rolling out a promotional campaign, tracking these gifts in your database, recognition opportunities, and stewarding donors.
