What do $100+ million donors look for
in charitable organizations?

And… Why it is important to think BIG!

About 17 years ago at Torrance Medical Center a major gift was considered to begin at the level of $1,000. For many, that may still be your major gift level, however, this presentation will show you how you too can change your organizational culture. Working with Melanie Lundquist and Laura Schenasi, Executive Vice President Torrance Memorial Foundation, the development team and administration at Torrance Memorial Medical Center learned to raise their sights, to ASK big and expect bigger. Their culture was transformed so that now major gifts for them start at the million-dollar gift level. This was a huge mind shift for their organization and it didn’t happen overnight. Come, listen and gain insight from one of those donors who helped Torrance Memorial Medical Center transform their culture and how you might do the same.
