  12. SOM Development Strategy • Projects should reflect the six areas of the SOM strategic research plan • Donor Driven • Major initiatives must have approval of Dean

  13. Coordination is Key • Prospective donors often have multiple interests • Systematic, integrated approach • Cultivation strategies and solicitations must be coordinated through development office

  14. 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

  15. 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

  16. Identification 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

  17. Information 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

  18. Interest / Involvement You should share your progress and provide opportunities for interaction to current donors and prospects • Share you vision for your work and illustrate its impact • Personal contact

  19. Investment Partner with the Development Office to create a comprehensive strategy to meet the interest and needs of prospects while enhancing your work • Develop gift options that fit prospect’s needs and interests • Provide stewardship

  20. All Gifts Count • Small gifts can lead to more significant contributions • It can take 11 small gifts before a donor makes a major gift of six figures or more • In soliciting major gifts, gift options can be important

  21. Corporate and Foundations • The Development Office works at the “wholesale” level • We focus on initiatives that are at the school-wide or departmental level and follow the six research themes outlined in SOM Research Strategic Plan

  22. Corporate and Foundations To grow our corporate and foundation revenue, we can not underestimate the importance of: • cultivating relationships with a wide range of foundations (corporate, family, community, etc) • intensive and thoughtful program planning • developing compelling and thorough grant proposals

  23. HIPAA – Patient Confidentiality and Development • Fundraising is considered an essential part of healthcare operation – Development can review certain personal health information • All information shared regarding patient, prospect or donor is held in the strictest confidence • Information you can share • Demographic • Non-Medical information pertaining to philanthropic interest

  24. Become a Partner with Development • The Development Office is an important part of SOM operations • Development Directors are advocates for you and your work • Development Directors can help you identify and cultivate donors while maintaining the sanctity of the physician / patient relationship
