Major Gifts Ramp-Up Virtual Fundraising – Charities Are Finally Receiving the Millions They Need During COVID-19
Major Gifts Ramp-Up Virtual Fundraising celebrates National Development Institute’s success in raising millions of dollars for charities during COVID-19. Here’s what Jimmy LaRose, creator of the Major Gifts Ramp-Up Model has to share about their dramatic transition to virtual fundraising:
We are now living through what is likely the greatest adaptive leadership challenge facing the world; this is not a mere blip, many things have already changed and will be changed forever. Our work in supporting charitable leaders to develop the mindsets, skills and resilience needed to look forward positively and courageously and to lead the creation of a better future, has never been more important.
Like everyone, we had to move quickly to adapt our fundraising model to the rapidly evolving circumstances in which we find ourselves. We are excited about the many opportunities opening up for all of us to think, work and collaborate in radically differently ways. It is a positive choice we can all make to explore, learn and innovate not only to work through the present challenges, but to create valuable new ways of working and connecting for the future.
“Major Gifts Ramp-Up Virtual 2-Day Conference was the single greatest live online event I’ve attended since the pandemic. The collaboration was spectacular!” ~ Maxie Carpenter, Center for Nonprofits
With this in mind, we’ve decided to move our training programs to a virtual delivery; this naturally involves rethinking and redesigning components to maintain the depth and richness of the fundraising experience, and the high quality of outcomes for our program participants. We are thrilled to have received positive and enthusiastic feedback from our clients and we’re grateful for the wonderful generosity of spirit that has been shown as we explore new ways of working together. With so many people working remotely our programs are providing invaluable opportunities for people to stay connected, engaged and positive about the future.

“Major Gifts Ramp-Up Saved our Nonprofit from COVID-19. We’ve been privileged to turn down PPP & EIDL so other nonprofits could access the funds they need to make it through the pandemic.” ~ Brent Bohanan, Habitat for Humanity
Simply put, money is oxygen. Without it you can’t breathe. Is your organization on life support? Are you receiving the air you need to survive the social and economic crisis we’re now facing? If you’re a nonprofit executive board member, development officer, pastor, volunteer or marketing director it’s time for you to RE-IMAGINE PHILANTHROPY in ways that transform both you and your important mission.
If you’re ready to flourish before, during and after COVID-19 Major Gifts Ramp-Up is the answer. Learn how to use your existing staff and resources to grow your organization by simply changing the way you function each day. Go from business as usual to fully funded revenues streams that will not only raise money for your immediate needs, but will install a permanent culture of philanthropy within your nonprofit. Here’s what needs to be in place.
1. At least six months operating cash reserves.
2. An unrestricted endowment comprised of at least $500,000.
3. Ongoing, deep relationships with at least 100 major donors.
4. An agile Board made up of only five to seven experts.
5. A robust Case for Support that describes a heroic mission of scale to impact your community.
6. A five year plan for growing impact and revenue.
Following the Great Recession of 2008, the founders of NANOE conducted a study of 485 nonprofits that received capacity building grants during the recession. Only 15% of these organization were able to leverage that funding to grow their impact and revenue.
When we studied those 15% who were successful, we learned the following:
1. They built more capacity over a five year period than those nonprofits who indicated they stagnated or declined during the same time period.
2. They grew budget, programs & donors, despite the recession.
3. They grew their nonprofits regardless of the size/involvement of their board.
4. They externalized their mission for the purpose of fundraising.
5. They developed board members who evaluated the chief executive and promoted the goals and values of the CEO.
What was the common factor in the success of these nonprofits? A strong CEO or Executive Director who planned for the future and viewed fundraising as a top priority. Strong leaders understand that philanthropy is essential for your nonprofit’s success and that 80% of philanthropy in the U.S. is from individuals and families.
Don’t let anyone tell you now is not the time to fund raise. Don’t let anyone tell you things have to stay the same. Don’t let a few panicked Board members hijack your nonprofit’s future. The future of your organization will be determined by your strong staff leadership (not by your Board or political leaders). Now is the time to act!

“I’ve spent the last week receiving email messages, phone calls and personal visits thanking me for bringing Major Gifts Ramp-Up to our community. This spectacular 2-day capacity-building conference was daring, confrontational and exactly what our organizations needed in the way of training. Conventional methods of management and fundraising were challenged with humor and insight. Their expert faculty engaged our grantees and inspired them to grow revenues in new ways that work. Prepare for significant change if you give yourself this gift.” ~ Pamela Ballard, Community Service Council
