MAJOR GIFT TRAINING

VM delivered a series of half-day training sessions on how to set up and deliver an ongoing major gift programme

Brief

The client had appointed a talented new member of staff into the post of Major Gift & Trust Fundraising Manager.  Valentine was asked to provide a series of half-day training sessions (over a 3-month period) helping the new team member to set up and deliver an ongoing major gift fundraising programme, integrated into the charity's other income streams.

As part of the training VM also provides regular progress reports to SMT against a set of key training objectives.

 

Client’s feedback

We are delighted with the progress made by our new major gifts manager - and in such a short space of time.  Valentine’s training is based around a clear and structured ladder of development so senior staff were able to see a real step change in her knowledge and her approach to what is a critical role in our fundraising team.

Major Gift Manager’s feedback

Valentine made the training fascinating and his real life examples really brought the theory to life.  He covers the main techniques involved in major donor fundraising but also ensures the smaller but no less critical elements are in place, even his insistency in getting the database systems right was invaluable.   I was a little daunted at first when I saw the areas we would be working on but Valentine made every stage clear and ensured I was able to turn theory into real working systems at my charity.  With his help, I have already started developing my networks and solicitation plans.

Mia Maniraj – Head of Major Donors and Trusts

Valentine was one of two fundraising advisors we commissioned to help develop our capital appeal fundraising strategy to support a successful £1.4 million heritage lottery bid, draft six-figure bids to major grant making trusts and foundations and to manage and steer our capital appeal fundraising committee.  His experience of capital appeals was extremely useful as was his local knowledge and good relationships with a number of key local supporters.
