How I can help


Launching major donor fundraising

How do you go about setting up major donor fundraising?
Who are these wealthy philanthropists who could give to your charity?
How do you persuade them to engage with your cause and ultimately give?
And how can your charity run major donor fundraising effectively?

I can work with you over a number of months to provide expertise and support in setting up a comprehensive programme.

We worked with Louise to help us develop and launc a new giving club. She supported us to clarify our aims, identify who to approach, what key messages to communicate and decide what benefits members would recieve.

With Louise’s support we’ve engaged supporters in a warm and personal way. In the first 3 months we’ve secured seven members and we’re expecting £45,000 income from the club in it’s first year, meeting our target and providing invaluable unrestricted income.

Louise gave the impetus and confidence as well as the specialist input to launch this and I’d recommend working with her to maximise major donor income- whatever stage you’re at.

Working with Louise means we now have a clear plan for major donor fundraising. We’re on track to build relationships with key supporters & develop this income stream. The Board accepted all of Louise’s suggestions including the need to invest. Louise has been incredible to work with – thank you!

Louise was a great help in putting together the bones of a major donor programme for us… For me, her warmth and support has given me confidence in making ‘the ask’. We’ll be inviting her back … when she has space in her diary.

I found working with Louise on our major donor fundraising a real treat.

We’re so much further along that I dared hope- we now have the foundations to build a really exciting major donor programme and we’ve secured a £40k donation!

If you’re looking to develop your major donor fundraising, get in touch with Louise.
