Major donor fundraising training – bespoke for your charity

A Summit training session for your fundraisers, trustees or senior team can be a great investment for your charity to succeed in major donor fundraising.

I provide training virtually and in person for 90 minutes, 3 hours or 1 day/2 half days. All sessions are interactive, workshop style with plenty of breaks.

All my training is completely bespoke – specific for the level of knowledge for those attending from your charity and to what you need. We will have a meeting beforehand where I will understand where you are at with major donor fundraising and what you want the training to achieve. I’ll then provide the agreed aims of the training and a session plan to achieve this.

Louise’s training has been a great experience and has really helped to accelerate our Major Donor fundraising at Sue Ryder. Louise made the training very relatable to the experience and size of our charity.  The team came away from the training feeling enthusiastic and excited to move forward with their Major Donor fundraising with brilliant tips and advice on how to do so. I would thoroughly recommend Louise’s Major Donor training.

Louise’s session with out Board covered all the aims we agreed.

The trustees like Louise’s approachsbility and style, noted how much they were listened to and her stories were stimulating and memorable.

Louise’s practical and manageable approach to major donor fundraising built the trustees’ confidence and has started their involvement, particularly the gentle pressure to plan what small step each of them could take.

“I thoroughly enjoyed Louise’s training, it was a brilliant kick-start for our major donor fundraising. By the end, the team were bouncing ideas around which was excellent.”

Earthwatch hadn’t done much major donor fundraising in the past and we weren’t sure where to start. So we asked Louise to run a workshop bringing together key staff across the charity. It was a really engaging day, completely specific to us and what we needed. She then produced an excellent, practical report with the next steps for us to develop our major donor programme. It really got to the point and 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.
