In October, The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) Advancement Services’ Research department presented on their work on calculating a donor's major giving capacity, inclination, and average annual gift. Following the program, JAX would now like to invite colleagues for a round table conversation and an opportunity to share their methodologies and approaches when it comes to calculating capacity and inclination for prospects. Come ready to discuss useful tools, best practices and challenges. Attendees are encouraged to bring questions, examples and materials to share with the group. This session is open to all who are interested.
