and Planned Giving.  

Major gifts initiatives are a critical part of any healthy fundraising program. JLO Consultant Inc. develops cultivation and solicitation strategies that lead to extraordinary gifts. We guide clients through initial identification of potential donors, engagement and stewardship of donors, and the ask of the major gift.
