People give from the heart. The heart is stirred by emotion. Our major donor strategies, messaging and experiences immerse donors into your mission, inspire action and ignite lasting partnerships.

Donor Events

Donor Events

Premier Donor Strategies offers a turnkey approach to planning and executing major donor events. For starters, we will analyze your landscape and then provide the blueprint for how to build a powerful, sustainable event. We provide a comprehensive scope of service, from site selection and negotiation, to securing speakers and performers, to event production and atmosphere, to guest hospitality, and the thousands of details necessary to make it a first-class, successful event. Our team will lead the way and manage the entire event so your team can focus on everyday responsibilities, while leveraging our expertise to present a game-changing moment for your organization.

Donor Strategies

Donor Strategies

Premier provides leadership to non-profit organizations in building key donor relationships that fuel the financial support needed to reach missional goals. Our team includes a partnership with one of the nation’s most respected donor executives, Tim Smith, to offer a highly-effective combination of talent, experience and results. Together, our strategies, campaigns and events have generated over $2 billion for ministries by immersing likeminded people with financial capacity into compelling funding opportunities. Our fundraising services include donor development program assessments, wealth analytics, capital campaign development and management, feasibility studies, multi-channel communications and coaching.

Virtual Donor Experience

Virtual Donor Experience

During the global pandemic, we launched a virtual platform called The BreakThrough – A Virtual Experience. Utilizing some of the most effective aspects of our destination events, we bundled them into a live, quick-hitting webcast to inspire your champions to stay involved. With in-person events back in full swing we've extended our virtual reach, with the help of our studio and AV partners, to offer live-streaming and post-event virtual gatherings to continue growing donor relationships in all environments.



Premier strongly believes that building a successful major donor game-plan and immersing key partners in strategically-created events go hand-in-hand to achieve exemplary results. Our experience has proven that motivating high-capacity donors to take action in fundraising initiatives must include an experiential events strategy. Nothing drives inspiration, relationships and loyalty more than personal engagement in a setting where the donor’s focus is solely on your organization and mission.

  • We IMMERSE ourselves into your organization and brand, building a thorough understanding of your mission, culture and vision, which enables us to become a highly-valued partner and advocate.


  • We INSPIRE creative thinking, helping unpack the “world of the possible” and then developing the best strategy and execution plan to achieve game-changing outcomes.


  • We IGNITE your organization’s sphere of influence – your leadership, your staff, your key partners, your audience – by executing the plan with precision and excellence.

Through this approach, we provide the guidance and tools to help you
expand ministry and fulfill vision. This is why we do what we do.

We do not force a cookie-cutter plan. We listen to your story and integrate ministry uniqueness into our proven foundational concepts to build a donor strategy and events plan customized to your mission and culture.

Experiential Mindset

When it comes to engaging with a cause, a growing majority of top-level donors want to EXPERIENCE it, not just write a check. Premier creates powerful experiences that will turn your key financial partners into ambassadors for your organization.

Price, Value & Transparency

We fight hard for our ministry partners and their budget. We bring great value through negotiating favorable contracts and we show how every dollar is spent. Bottom line, we produce a world class experience for an affordable price point.

Atmosphere & Messaging

We excel at immersing your major donors into an atmosphere that prepares their heart for generosity and then presenting your organization’s story in a wildly-compelling way. We help develop a ministry messaging plan that centers on inspirational stories of impact and vision-casting.


Our team brings an unmatched combination of expertise in donor strategy, campaign development and funding large-scale initiatives with major donor events. In unison, these ingredients all work together to produce goal-driven results.
