Start major donor fundraising from scratch, the new Summit programme

Major Donor Fundraising from Scratch
  • Do you want to develop major donor fundraising but not sure where to start & where to find these major donors?
  • Do you need to raise more income in 2021 but major donor fundraising is new to your organisation?
  • Would you like the confidence to meet and ask major donors to support your cause?
  • Do you want a proven approach to raising large gifts and to know you’re on the right track?
  • Do you want a plan for major donor fundraising at your charity?

If this is you, you can join this new programme to start major donor fundraising from scratch and raise more in 2021.
I’ve helped over 100 charities raise more large gifts & I specialise in helping charities set up their major donor fundraising.

Earthwatch hadn’t done much major donor fundraising in the past and we weren’t sure where to start. Working with Louise gave us the confidence and clear next steps for our major donor programme. I’d recommend Louise to any charity who wants to set up or grow their major donor fundraising.
