Who We Are
Major & Planned Development is a full-service consulting firm
A thriving major-gift planning program is essential to the growth, stability, and sustainability of any nonprofit.
But how do you get a program started … or how do you get a reactive program to grow?
Building the program you need is a lot easier when you have a proven process to follow and a personal guide to get you there.
That’s where the team at Gift Planning Development comes in. We help fundraisers and department leaders just like you grow the right program for their organization—faster and easier than they can imagine is possible.
And the best part is, because you will have built your program on a solid infrastructure, you’ll have confidence the program will continue to bring in gifts for your organization for many years to come.
The team at gift planning development has decades of experience helping fundraisers and nonprofits. After an assessment of your individual giving program, we develop a personal plan to help you grow a strong and sustainable gift planning program.
The program is called “Gift Planning Essentials.” This 9-12 month program can be tailored to the specific culture, size and budget of your organization.
Decades of experience, working for you
