PLAN-MGO is an immersive, four-day training event that transforms development professionals into Master Gift Officers by reengineering the nature of their relationships with donors, goals, asks, and stewardship.
PLAN-MGO is designed for staff, trustees, board members, and others engaged in not-for-profit fundraising. It offers coaching and tools designed to identify and eliminate old, unconscious paradigms and assumptions which limit fundraising success, as well as to bring out the inherent brilliance of each participant. You will return to your organization fully confident and ready to move the needle in ways not considered possible before.

If you have a budget for continuing professional education, you are going to want to spend 100% of it on PLAN-MGO. If you don’t have a budget for continuing professional education, PLAN-MGO would inspire you to negotiate one – tomorrow. PLAN-MGO is just that valuable. From exquisitely gifted and deeply knowledgeable faculty to an evidence-based curriculum, don’t miss this opportunity – for you, your team or your staff. Susan Buchanan, Major and Planned Gifts Officer, Concord Hospital Trust, NH – 2015
I was shocked by how energized, inspired, and empowered I felt at the end of the four days. The conference presenters provided specific fundraising tools (tracking documents, ask algorithms) and shared fundamentals for making “the ask,” within an overarching framework of positive inquiry and promoting a culture of philanthropy in our organizations. Personally, the importance of understanding ourselves and truly listening to others as we build relationships with donors, senior executives, colleagues, and team members was the most valuable lesson of this extraordinary weekend. PLAN-MGO is a truly unique learning experience, and exceeded all expectations. Megan Hinckley, Director of Development, American Repertory Theater, Loeb Drama Center, MA – 2015
The PLAN-MGO conference was beyond my expectations. I was able to build real relationships with all of the attendees and know that I can reach out to any of them for support and guidance at any time. The guest speakers were engaging, inspiring, motivational and clearly the experts in their fields. I left the conference feeling empowered and motivated with the proper tools to move forward and be successful. Thank you for this invaluable learning experience!

The late and great Maya Angelou once said “When you know better, you do better.” That’s what rings true to me after attending the PLAN-MGO conference. In my 15+ years of doing this work, I have never left a conference feeling so inspired. From the caliber and professionalism of the speakers, to the knowledge and materials that were provided, I can only see myself growing as a professional and human being…no longer being afraid to ASK.
