Join us on Friday February 10 for a virtual presentation with Nathan Rice, Senior Director of Gift Planning for Texas Tech University System.(TTUS)

During this session we will dive into a one-time donor survey, along with other gift planning marketing materials, used by the TTU System over the past seven years to generate qualified leads for major gift fundraisers. This includes the research, planning, implementation, response gathering, follow up, gift documentation, stewardship, and evaluation of multiple donor pieces.

The TTUS Office of Gift Planning planned and implemented the survey and marketing materials with the follow up and stewardship being a collaborative effort among all our fundraising professionals. We will walk through the entire process, including successes and short falls.

We will learn:

  1. How to implement a non-profit donor survey
  2. How to effectively follow up on donor survey and marketing responses
  3. How to turn those responses into booked gifts for your organization
