Established nonprofit/nongovernmental organizations develop a long-term mission-driven strategy that guides donor cultivation, stewardship efforts, and underpins financial success. Planning for success begins with legacy planning as a growth strategy to include long-term and planned giving fundraising tools. Cultivating donors means investing time, money and resources that an organization will need to weigh together to make good decisions for its future. Students will evaluate planning strategies that include prospecting for donors, offering events, cultivating bequests and endowments, accessing donor advised funds, or buying real estate as sustainable approaches. Additionally, students will evaluate grant cultivation and major gift-solicitation tactics that may help nonprofits strengthen their development portfolios.
