RUN A LEADERSHIP GIVING CAMPAIGN
► Gain CEO or top management support. Have your CEO or Leadership support team make personal requests and send personal thank-you letters.
► Hold a special event to encourage participation at the Leadership level.
- For example, when one company hosted their first Women’s Leadership Society luncheon, giving increased by 35 percent!
► Ask Leadership Givers for their support prior to the start of campaign. This allows company leaders to set the pace for the campaign for the rest of the company.
► Visibly recognize your Leadership Givers throughout the organization.
