People give from the heart. The heart is stirred by emotion. Our major donor experiences create emotion and transform it into lasting partnerships.
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.
Premier Donor Strategies can provide expert direction for organizations looking to create or enhance a major donor development program. As your portfolio of major donors increases, so too does the importance of implementing a well-conceived plan to maintain and grow those relationships. Our team can implement pre-event and post-event strategies such as: file analysis to identify major donor prospects, wealth analytics, multi-channel communications, “transformational vs. transactional” engagement and providing an assessment of your overall donor development program along with best practices.
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.
A Major Donor Event is a multi-day event designed as a special invitation to top-level financial partners, held in a resort setting, and presenting them with a compelling combination of vision, personalities, hospitality and inspiration. It is aimed at increasing financial commitments from existing donors as well as utilizing this platform to instigate contributions from new sources.
IMMERSE a group of successful and likeminded people in a captivating atmosphere. INSPIRE them with passionate messaging, stories of impact and a big vision for a common cause. IGNITE them to engage deeper with your organization and to make a significant, multi-year financial commitment.

Every organization has existing donors who have the financial capacity to give much more. But you have to INSPIRE them in order to maximize their commitment. A strategically produced major donor event utilizing Premier’s leadership can do just that.
We help non-profit organizations develop and execute major donor strategies, featuring high-level events that have proven to IGNITE its participants to give millions of dollars with an astounding ROI, while building loyal partners who become motivated ambassadors for your mission.
Hosting a successful major donor experience is unlike any other event. It is NOT simply a fundraiser. Every aspect must be developed and presented within a distinct system that all builds towards making the ultimate “ask” to your financial partners. Organizations need guidance from a team that understands every key ingredient that makes this type of event generate top results.
REVENUE: While there are multiple benefits to hosting a major donor event, financial success is the ultimate measurement tool. Premier-led events will generate donor commitments well into seven figures.
ROI: Our results are proven time after time, with return-on-investment consistently ranging from 5:1 to 10:1.
The success of a major donor event is directly proportional to three key ingredients – we call it the AMP factor. AMP provides the power and energy to maximize results – the right Atmosphere, the right Message and the right People. By following Premier’s lead, your organization can tap into this formula and experience the powerful results.
