major gift initiatives

Major gift solicitation requires planning. We partner with you to develop a multi-year plan for major gift solicitation: identifying prospects, researching prospects, rating your donors, deciding on appropriate ask amount, and advising on the "ask" approach.

Catapult specializes in identifying gifts ranging from six figures to a million dollars and above. Our customized gift charts will help you clarify the search for larger gifts. We work with all types of major gift initiatives.
