Do major gift and planned gift staff need “sales managers”?
JULY 12, 2017
Sales managers? The private sector usually has sales managers for their teams. But too many of them don’t know how to manage lead generation, cultivation, and tactical “closing” teams. It’s time for fundraising shops to employ sales management principles. I think every nonprofit with major gift and planned gift staff needs a structure that yields accountability metrics that have been proven effective in the private sector.
