Lesson: Major Donors and the New Nonprofit

Your mission, should you choose to accept it…

What is a Major Donor?

Most people believe an individual, family, or organization giving more than $100,000 to a nonprofit organization is considered to be a major donor. The reality is that each organization determines the threshold for who is considered a major donor and who isn’t. For new and small nonprofits, a donor who gives an accumulated $100 a year or in a single gift may be a major donor to the organization. They are important to nonprofit organizations because they help us raise money to fund our mission and services.

Why you need to do it:

Nonprofit organizations rely on major donors to help them achieve their goals. These donors are often individuals or organizations who are willing to give a large amount of money to a particular cause. While there are a variety of reasons why someone might donate to a nonprofit, the main reasons are to help others and to make a difference.
