You’ll leave better informed on why matching gifts work and how to implement such a tactic within your own program, no matter the size of your budget or the scope of your mission.

A Word From Our Partner

Nexus has been a “Force Multiplier” for our Membership and Development teams.  Our annual giving and growth had plateaued and we did not have the resources in house to increase our efforts. The creative Nexus team defined our requirements and helped us pivot quickly in a new and successful direction.  We’re on track and look forward to more collaboration with Nexus and growth in our programs.
