Planned Giving is about connecting with those donors closest to your organization. More than direct mail, it is donor engagement. Our proven integrated donor cultivation and planned gift solicitation Cycle of Cultivation service does the work for you. We identify, cultivate, and ask your best prospects annually. Our focused program includes prospect identification, donor inspiration, and solicitation. The process takes place over a one-year period, and can be repeated annually with different prospects being asked at the end of each cycle.
