"Proven Strategies to Connect with Major Donors via Special Events"

Fundraising professionals often treat special events like Grandma’s crocheted sweaters: We only pretend to be happy with the gift. “Proven Strategies to Connect with Major Donors via Special Events” includes entertaining, experience-based tactics to transform events into opportunities for prospecting, cultivating, and stewarding. Remember, Grandma’s sweater may be the first indication she’s left you an estate gift!

Speaker - Phoenicia Miracle 

Since 2000, Phoenicia Miracle has led non-profit fundraising and marketing teams to raise more than $64MM. Formerly an English teacher, Phoenicia’s development work began at Second Harvest Food Bank, continued to Savannah Music Festival, and culminated as vice president of Memorial Hospital Foundation. After HCA bought Memorial, Phoenicia launched Miracle Strategies Fundraising and Marketing to immediate success due to her pragmatic ability to meet each client’s need in a budget-friendly, efficient manner. In August, she and her husband, Dan Nale, Ph.D., relocated to Charleston where he teaches engineering at his alma mater, the Citadel.
