Development Director

12:00-1:30 PM



 Lighthouse for the Blind

Map and Directions




The cost and difficulty of acquiring new donors vastly exceeds that of retaining existing donors. Thus, good stewardship practices may well be the most important aspect of your work with major donors. Please join DER for the final session of our 3-part series on major donor work. Jennifer Sachs, Development Director of Lighthouse for the Blind, will be speaking about best practices she has developed in stewarding major donors ranging from small touches to big gestures. Her remarks will primarily focus on stewardship practices used on an everyday/ regular basis. Jennifer will also briefly speak about the unique challenges in properly stewarding a recently received landmark bequest gift from a completely unknown donor.



 Jennifer Sachs - Jennifer is the Development Director of Lighthouse for the Blind which promotes the independence, equality and self-reliance of people who are blind or have low vision. Jennifer oversees all aspects of development at Lighthouse including individual, corporate, and foundation funding. Prior to Lighthouse, she has served in Development roles with On Lok and SF BayKeeper.
