Finally, someone who not only understands major gifting in theory, but who brings a fully orbed view that they’ve actually applied in the blocking and tackling of MG work! The metrics given are legitimate because I personally employ very similar metrics and I know that these metrics work and are viable. The hosts bring substance coupled with practicality and years of proven experience. Finally, they’re versed on growing the entire donor pipeline from acquisition through legacy giving which is refreshing.
