    Major Giving – What Would Buddha Do?

    March 10, 2017 7:30 am to 9:00 am


    “It is better to travel well, than to arrive.” – Buddha

    You have the toughest job in the world.  Ever wonder how to simplify your work?  Consider to yourself, how do I begin to get more gifts, bigger gifts and gifts from more people?  Come have breakfast and ponder how you spend your time, effort and energy?  Are you focused on people who want you to prosper—those most likely, willing and able to give?  “Relationship fundraising” is now embraced by all professionals, understood by very few and employed by an infinitely smaller few.   Come listen, learn and overcome all the challenges, barriers and obstacles in your way.
