Monthly Luncheon











 Finding New Major Donors to

Support Your Organization



Friday, May 20, 2016

12:00 - 1:30 PM


The NEW Lighthouse for the Blind!

1155 Market Street

San Francisco, CA 94103

Map and Directions


All organizations would like to have more major donors. But identifying and acquiring new major donors are among the most difficult and time consuming activities. How can you maximize your results given limited time, money, and other resources? Julie ver Steeg and Laurent “Lo” De Janvry will offer their strategies and insight from extensive experience working on these very issues. Julie will focus her remarks on how to work with Board members and other existing major donors to build upon their networks and bring in new major donors. Laurent will focus on “data mining” – the strategy of looking within an organization’s database to identify “diamonds in the rough” who might become major donors. Which strategy will prove most effective for your organization? One of these or another idea you have never thought of before? Come explore these issues on May 20th with DER, taking place at the beautiful new headquarters for Lighthouse for the Blind!

This will be the first of a series of luncheons focused on major donor work. Cultivation and asking major donors will take place in July and stewarding major donors in September.



This workshop is approved for 1.5 CFRE credits.
