Major Donors are the life blood of most charities.
Even more so now, as charities grapple with the challenges of income generation and search for lead major donors for on-line matched giving campaigns, major donor fundraising will be critical.
Finding the right people and bringing them on board is always a challenge.

What they said about previous
Major Donor courses
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.
Israel Guide Dogs
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
I’ve just finished the best major donor fundraising course run by Goldberg Consulting. It was a brilliantly informative, three days spent learning everything about the world of fundraising and provided a fresh insight into how to find your next big donor and how to make the successful ask. David’s presenting style mixed the right amount of humour and anecdote with a wealth of experience. The course flowed so effortlessly, and it was a pleasure to be in a Covid safe room with other amazing fundraisers.
