Major Gifts Program

Major Gifts donors make contributions of $5,000 or more in a calendar year. There are three contribution levels: a Silver contribution, which reflects donations of $5,000 to $24,999; a Gold contribution, which reflects donations of $25,000 to $49,999; and a Platinum contribution, which reflects donations of $50,000 and higher.

Contributors to NCRF’s Major Gifts Program are required to adhere to the program’s donation policy, which includes a review by a Major Gifts Donation Committee, a written agreement by the donor to abide by NCRA’s Constitution & Bylaws and its Code of Professional Ethics, and the agreement to ensure all donated funds are received by NCRF in a specified time.


In return, Major Gifts donors receive a myriad of benefits for each of the three contribution levels.
