Donor Cultivation is an organization's ability to identify, cultivate, and ask individuals for donations.

In the third (and final) lesson toward your silver Merit badge, you'll explore:

  • Harnessing the power of goal selection and goal pursuit strategy when working with your donors.

  • Using regulatory focus to fine-tune your personal goals, including examples to consider.

  • A recommended first organization-wide goal surrounding donor cultivation (and why we recommend it).
