coordination is key
Coordination is Key
  • Prospective donors often have multiple interests
  • Systematic, integrated approach
  • Cultivation strategies and solicitations must be coordinated through development office
know your case for support
Know Your Case for Support
  • You should always have a short list of strategic funding priorities
  • Communicate how the gift will make the program / research stronger
  • You should be able to articulate how your program fits the SOM research priorities
the basics
The Basics
  • Identification – Prospects come from a variety of connections
  • Information – Increase the prospect’s awareness / understanding of your activities
  • Interest / Involvement – Create interest and move potential donors towards involvement
  • Investment – Take the right steps when the donor is ready to make gift

It is important to listen for subtle clues that may help you identify prospective donors

  • Grateful Patients – “help you out” or “return the favor”
  • Families whose loved ones have received care
  • Departmental alumni and / or former residents

The Development Office can work with you to provide the right information to prospects in the right format

  • Translate your work into lay terms
  • Develop proposals
  • Arrange personal visits
interest involvement
Interest / Involvement

You should share your progress and provide opportunities for interaction to current donors and prospects
