Stop suffering on the annual fundraising treadmill. Learn a tested and proven system for finding and cultivating the perfect major donors who love your mission—donors who will give for operations, capital, and endowment. In this special session designed for board members, CEOs, and fund development directors, you will learn to engage every board member in the major gifts process without requiring that they ever ask for money.

By the end of this session, you will have learned:

  • • A proven system for engaging and developing relationships with mission-focused major donors
  • • A systematic process for converting existing donors into major donors
  • • To reconnect your board members to their passion for your work and engage them in the fundraising process without requiring that they ask for money

Benevon trains and coaches nonprofit organizations to implement a mission-based system for raising sustainable funding from individual donors. This system ends the suffering about fundraising and builds passionate and committed lifelong donors. The Benevon Model was developed by founder Terry Axelrod, author of seven books and several DVDs, including her most recent book, The Benevon Model: A Step-by-Step Guide to Getting it Right.
