Are you moving toward smaller donor events?
Learn how to create a cultivation strategy that includes smaller, more personalized donor events to engage some of your institution’s most avid supporters. Also known as “salon events”, these intimate events that often take place in donors’ homes, or other unique settings, are the ideal way to connect with donors strategically and develop the philanthropic relationships that matter most. Get details, tactics, and planning documents that you can use to ensure a successful donor cultivation experience.

Built upon a passion for the impact of philanthropy and the relationships that make it possible, Kathy Drucquer Duff’s 23 plus year advancement career underlies the expertise she provides to clients. Kathy is an executive advancement officer who has led teams in building transformative strategies: strategies that allow staff and colleagues to transform through growth, purpose and commitment, and strategies that allow donors to transform themselves and their passions through giving.
Kathy is helping non-profits and institutions transform the way they practice philanthropy to secure their success in the long term. She provides this expertise from her experience in developing fundraising plans that have secured gifts of up to 9 figures, and in building strategic talent management models that can be used by organizations of all sizes and operating budgets.
Kathy’s “grow your own” fundraiser model was developed during the economic downturn of the 2000s when limited budgets did not allow for the robust hiring of new development staff. Instead, Kathy built a structured talent management program that maximized existing resources, inspired loyalty, and generated fundraising results. This approach has led to comprehensive programs in donor pipeline development, talent acquisition, new-hire onboarding, individualized retention, and in-house professional development.
Kathy has developed her breadth and depth of expertise at large, sophisticated institutions:
Kathy is a sought-after consultant and speaker for industry associations including CASE and ADRP. She teaches a variety of fundraising essentials courses and webinars for Academic Impressions.
