In higher education, we recognize donors by naming the student center, endowed chairs, bricks and even bathrooms. District bond measures have helped pave the way for new and updated facilities that can create opportunities to recognize your major donors. Do you have all the tools you need to shepherd a major gift through your governance process to your Board of Trustees?
Join us as we walk through processes for recognizing major gifts from the perspective of a multi and single college district. Please bring your documents and processes (or share a lack there of) to see where you can tweak (or create) your procedures to keep donor legacies alive. This will be an interactive Roundtable for you to bring your best practices.
