The Moves Team
Moves Manager: air traffic controller
a professional development staff member
coordinates the process and develops the overall strategy:
"We'll ask Mr. and Mrs. Jones for a leadership gift of $250,000. The ask will be made no more than 12 months from now."
Moves management requires coordination with several people who know how to communicate effectively with one another.
Natural Partners - the people who know the probable donors the best.
provide critical information
can suggest strategies for connecting to probable donors
they may even take part in the solicitation
often will be suggested by board members
assist with cultivation
inspire with their own support
Primary Player(s)- the person the
probable donor will have the hardest
time saying "no" to.
holds greatest leverage
What makes for a good move?
identify best and minimum possible outcomes. Determine what the next moves will be. How can you get them closer to "yes"?
review key points to be covered during the call. This includes the benefits of your work that are most likely to appeal to the probable donor.
If more than one natural partner is on the call, decide who will cover what. It needs to be orchestrated.
What is cultivation?
must have specific and desired outcome
simple entertainment is sometimes mistakenly classified as a move
your natural partners should be involved whenever possible
make sure a particular trustee sits next to the probable donor
Measuring Moves Outcomes
determine the best outcome before the visit
anticipate probable donor's questions, concerns and tangential reactions (What if the person wants to talk about anything other than your organization? How do you segue back to your work, mission and purpose of the meeting?)
confer with natural partners after the call and assess
determine what you hope to achieve in future moves
schedule your next move
