Maximizing Your Results with Mid-Level Giving
Thursday, June 21 at 2:00 p.m. ET

What if you could also boost those giving $10,000 or less, without interrupting your major gift prospecting? Join Lawrence Henze, principal consultant at Blackbaud, as he explores mid-level giving for higher education institutions and how to maximize your return by digging into the data, identifying mid-level prospects, and taking your fundraising to the next level.
