Do You Have a Strong Pipeline Funnel for Major Gifts and Planned Gifts?

Most shops (large or small) think they have a strong pipeline funnel that results in major and planned gifts. This presentation focuses on what a pipeline funnel template looks like, what fundraising tools comprise the funnel, the most effective tools in the funnel, and the cost effectiveness of each part of the funnel. If you would like to improve the effectiveness of your pipeline funnel, this presentation is for you!
