Major and Planned Gifts
Major and Planned Gifts is a component of the Division of Institutional Advancement. Under the Vice Chancellor for Institutional Advancement, this unit is responsible for managing the process of identifying, cultivating and soliciting commitments to ECSU of $10,000 or more and for instituting and managing a comprehensive planned giving program. Unit functions include increasing the number and dollar amount of major gifts received each year; linking major donor prospects to specific programs and schools; assisting in the development and solicitation of major gift prospects for major multi-year, multi-million dollar campaigns; and enhancing the number of planned giving commitments that ECSU has with individuals and alumni each year. A planned giving advisory committee supports the development of planned giving solicitations and strategies as well as planned giving workshops, seminars and publications.
