Over the past 15 years I’ve helped hundreds of fundraisers find the confidence and develop the tools to hit their major donor fundraising targets.

If you’re looking to improve your major donor fundraising approaches and raise more income for your charity, I highly recommend Louise. She has inspired me so much and encouraged me to grow in confidence, making more ambitious strategic asks. Thanks to Louise, I’ve built more authentic, engaging donor relationships than ever before and in the short time I’ve worked with her I’ve raised over £600,000 in donations and pledged income. Thank you Louise!

Major donor fundraising isn’t always easy…

  • Do you feel the pressure to meet targets and get those big gifts, when you’re working hard and short on time?
  • Is the pandemic making it harder for you to contact donors and find new ones?
  • Do you worry about asking wealthy people for money for your cause? 😲
  • Has it all gone quiet with some of your current and potential donors?

If you have any or all of these challenges, you’re not alone! And you’re in the right place to get the tools and the confidence to overcome them and hit your target with the Summit 5 Step Major Donor Fundraising Workshop.

For the past 15 years, I’ve been helping hundreds of fundraisers find the confidence and tools to hit their major donor fundraising targets.

I’ve trained and coached over 150 fundraisers and leaders to grow in confidence, meet with major donors and successfully ask them for gifts.

I’ve interviewed 80 philanthropists and understand the psychology that motivates them to give.

I’ve been there as a major gift fundraiser and fundraising leader and I know it can be tough!

The Summit 5 Step Major Donor Workshop will help you:

💰 Hit your major donor fundraising target

You’ll get practical tips that you can take away and immediately implement
The workshop is action-focused with examples of real-life situations so you get the most out of the time we have together.

I’ve been able to inspire major gifts which has meant we’ve hugely exceeded our target by over £250k this year!

💪🏼 Build your confidence

Learn techniques for some of the scariest parts of major donor fundraising (picking up the phone to call donors, asking for money),  understand the psychology behind giving and how to enjoy that contact with your existing and potential major donors.

Your session really inspired me to reach out to major donors, without necessarily having a specific agenda

Lucie Stangl, Senior Development Manager, Compassion in World Farming

Face your year feeling motivated and inspired

You can take heart that others are facing the same challenges, learn what’s working for them, and hear Louise’s examples from her work with over 100 different charities. Fall back in love with your major donor fundraising.

Your session really reminded me that we can be very guilty of strategizing and lose sight of what is important – donor relationships. It was such an insightful reminder of why I started working in philanthropy
