Plus Delta Welcomes University of Montana Foundation to Client Community
Date Published: 08/31/21
Plus Delta Partners is pleased to announce a new partnership with the University of Montana Foundation. Beginning in September, eight participants from the University of Montana Foundation will commence Plus Delta’s nine-month Discipline of Frontline Fundraising Program (DFF).
The University of Montana Foundation is an independent, nonprofit organization that serves the University of Montana by managing private fundraising efforts, donations, and the investment of endowed gifts. Dedicated trustees, staff professionals and volunteers are deeply committed to the mission-critical work of the Foundation to definitively shape UM as a world-class institution that improves the life of every student. In August 2020, the UM Foundation and UM concluded the most ambitious and successful higher education fundraising campaign in state history – Campaign Montana inspired $450.9 million in giving to the UM Foundation from more than 34,000 donors.
"Our partnership with Plus Delta represents an important investment in the UM Foundation’s future fundraising efforts. As we celebrate UM’s remarkable giving community and build on the significant momentum of Campaign Montana, we remain committed to strengthening our discipline around donor strategy and building innovative and forward-thinking skills,” says Cindy Williams, President and CEO at the University of Montana Foundation.
The UM Foundation is actively recruiting development officers this fall; those who join the organization will be invited to participate in the Discipline of Frontline Fundraising Program, which enables frontline fundraisers to more efficiently and effectively raise major, principal and planned gifts.
"We are delighted to be working with University of Montana Foundation to help them build a more disciplined practice of fundraising through the consistent application of a proven approach to inspiring philanthropic gifts,” says Guy Hart, President & CEO at Plus Delta Partners.
