An effective major gift program is the keystone of a sustainable and robust non-profit. Few things have as powerful an impact on your organization’s ability to thrive today and to reach its longer-term goals tomorrow. And few things can have as powerful an impact on your relationship with your major donors as a well-orchestrated event, deepening their sense of commitment and partnership with you, potentially opening doors to new opportunities that may not have been possible any other way.
At Abound we offer a slate of Major Donor Events designed to maximize major donors' connection to your mission, including:
  • Banquet events
  • VIP Receptions
  • Small Group Briefing Events
  • President's Weekends
With twenty-plus years experience working with major donors, our team is able to assist you in planning and executing highly effective major donor events, either as a turnkey product where we manage everything from start to finish, or on an a la carte basis. Our turnkey service includes assistance in all aspects of the event, including:
  • Developing materials and strategies for promoting the event and inviting key donors and partners
  • Site selection and pre-event planning, including assistance in developing the programme, speakers' list, audio-visual presentations, collateral materials, etc.
  • On-site event management and stage direction
  • Assistance in training your presenters in the "art of the ask"
  • Planning and assistance in effective follow-up strategies with your donors
