Major Donor Course
May 6th,13th & 20th
Next May, I will once again be offering this course aimed at those with a minimum of one year’s fundraising experience and who wish to develop skills to work with Major Donors.
This course is a great opportunity to learn and/or improve your major donor fundraising skills and help to bring in thousands of pounds more into your charity.
Major Donors are the life blood of most charities. They make a significant impact on your organisation’s income but finding the right people and bringing them on board can be challenging.
This three day hands-on course will cover the key principles of major donor fundraising, teach the appropriate tools to attract significant support for your charity and maintain long term relationships to benefit your organisation for years to come.

What they said about the course
This course changed the way I think and speak about my charity. The insight I have gained has given me more confidence to approach and engage major donors.
David's knowledge and experience in this area is priceless and I have learnt so much that I will take forward with me as well as imparting this knowledge to my colleagues. I am already looking forward to using what I have learnt and hitting those targets!
The course gave me lots of information in a practical and engaging way and has left me with a feeling of being excited to implement what I have learnt. David is an excellent trainer who has a wealth of knowledge and encourages all the participants in an encouraging and meaningful way.

David Goldberg's Major Donor Fundraising course was one of the best things I ever did as a Director of a small charity. His insights and knowledge of the Jewish charity sector gained from over 10 years working in senior positions were valuable ones which have helped me on my way to growing and expanding my operations within the charity. David presents this course in a managed and methodical manner and you finish this course both knowing far more than when you started and maybe, more importantly, extremely motivated to go out and put his theories to practice.

Highly practical, relevant and realistic - the course presents the best ideal opportunity to step away from the day-to-day to focus on fundraising in a way that makes a difference

The course was a fantastic way to explore the ask. David gave us a very clear structure and approach. The chance to rehearse an ask and see different responses from donors was a beneficial experience. I definitely feel more confident in approaching donors.
