I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Jeff Schreifels, senior partner at the Veritus Group, a major gifts consulting firm, on what nonprofits are doing now in this time of economic uncertainty, and what we SHOULD be doing.
Jeff will be presenting on how to get your board to raise major gifts for you at the Nonprofit Leadership Summit this September.
In this quick 14 minute interview, Jeff Schreifels lays it down on
-What trends he is seeing NOW in nonprofits around the country
-When your cause is getting media attention-what you should do
-When you’re overly dependent on government and foundation money-what you should do
-When the chips are down, why you should NOT get rid of fundraising staff
-How to build a pipeline of major donors
-How to get your board to start fundraising for you.
To learn more from Jeff, join us at the Nonprofit Leadership Summit in September!
Last year, our attendees said:
I loved every single session; so much information and value. This by far the most exciting and fulfilling summit I have ever done. I feel I understand my role a little more as a board member but also realize the importance of fundraising and having a decided plan to move forward. Many thanks to all presenters. This was so worth it.

I was impressed with the enthusiasm in the Nonprofit Leadership Summit presenters voices! They were able to keep me engaged and present! Their great enthusiasm inspired me to take action.
