To help manage your organization's relationships with its constituents, you may use fundraisers or constituents who interact with other constituents and prospects on behalf of your organization, to cultivate relationships and solicit giving. For example:

  • Staff members — such as Major Gift Officers — may be responsible for sizable gifts from wealthy constituents and prospects.

  • Volunteers and committee members may spend time to build constituent relationships and ask specific donors for gifts.

  • Board members, trustees, or executives who have been with your organization for an extended period may personally know constituents and be able to secure giving.

  • Donors, who may solicit gifts from friends and family on behalf of your organization. For information, see Peer-to-Peer Fundraising.
