A major giving program designed to help raise emergency funding for your nonprofit.

A new study says major donors are ready to give … Are you ready to ask?

A new study just released by Fidelity Charitable indicates that 80% of major donors plan to give the same or more than they did last year, even in the face of this COVID-19 crisis. The study also indicated that most donors do not plan to shift their giving to different organizations in light of the pandemic; they will stay the course by continuing to support their favorite nonprofits.

Bottom line… donors are prepared to give generously in response to this crisis. All you need do is ask.

But here’s the question many nonprofits are grappling with … What’s the most effective way to make a major ask when you can’t host events/gatherings or visit with major donors in person?

We have a solution that may be exactly what you need right now. 

Learn about the DickersonBakker COVID-19 Recovery Campaign program designed to help raise major emergency funding for your nonprofit organization.


Modeled after the highly successful integrated major donor campaign program that we typically conduct for clients at calendar year-end, we are offering this special campaign program at a steeply discounted price. These campaigns generate a very high ROI, and we do not normally offer them as a one-off service but given today’s circumstances we have decided to make an exception to that rule.


We are offering very flexible payment terms on these campaigns to make it as easy as possible for you to take advantage of this opportunity to get the funding you need to manage through this crisis. Understanding that cash is tight for everyone right now, we have backloaded the payment schedule so that most of our fees can be paid later, after you start receiving proceeds from this campaign.

This COVID-19 Recovery Campaign program is specially designed for major donors and will not conflict with your direct mail and other fundraising efforts.

Your major gift team will particularly appreciate having a campaign like this to work on, since it will help them accelerate their individual major gift fundraising activities, and reach more people than they otherwise could.

Frequently Asked Questions

When is the best time to conduct this campaign?

We recommend conducting this campaign during the summer, once the acute phase of this crisis has abated and the financial markets and economy are beginning to normalize. This will help bridge the gap between now and the fall, when hopefully we will be in full recovery. To do the campaign in the summer, we must start preparing now.

How long will it take to develop the campaign?

It takes approximately 8 weeks to develop and launch the campaign once an agreement has been formalized. The campaign runs for approximately 6 weeks after it is launched. If you are interested in a summer campaign it is best to start now.

What does it take to get started?

All we need from you to get started is a simple agreement and a small initial payment. We expect there will be strong demand for this service, and we do not know exactly how many of these campaigns our team will be able to handle, so we are offering them to existing clients first and then to others on a first-come first-served basis.

Did you know?
The recently passed CARES Act includes expanded tax deductions for charitable giving that will provide many major donors with a powerful incentive to give more this year.
