Amy began her career in a one-person development shop and worked for over a decade as a frontline fundraiser at both large and small organizations. Like you, she’s been in the trenches.
As a consultant for more than 10 years, Amy has worked with all types of organizations to raise major gifts and conduct capital campaigns.

She earned the CFRE for the first time in 2004, and ACFRE, the highest credential in fundraising in 2013.
“Am I Cut Out to Raise Major Gifts?”
You often wonder, “Why can’t we get this at my organization? What are we missing?”
THE #1 REASON MOST FUNDRAISERS FAIL
They Don’t Have a Mentor
The only reason I learned to raise major gifts is because I worked at a big university and I was surrounded by experienced major gift officers.
Most development directors and executive directors don’t have the luxury of having someone by their side, step-by-step to help them avoid the pitfalls and guide them toward success.
What’s more, now that you (and every other fundraiser) has to navigate the fallout of COVID and a sluggish economy, it’s even more critical to have an experienced mentor in your life.
THIS ISN’T SIMPLY ABOUT HAVING THE KNOW-HOW
But Having the Courage to Keep Going
THIS IS ABOUT
Building Good Habits
You Might Be Thinking: “Easy For YOU, But…”
- My board wants me to focus on special events (at least until COVID hit)…
- I’m the only one in my development shop and I’m responsible for everything…
- We don’t have any good prospects…
- My board members aren’t willing to help with asking…
Start Raising Major Gifts with Confidence

MAYBE YOU’VE BEEN GETTING BY WITH ONE FUNDRAISING EVENT AFTER ANOTHER.
COVID put an end to all that.
And while grant writing helps, grants have always been too restrictive and require too much reporting. If you want to survive through COVID and really boost your fundraising, NOW is the time to raise major gifts. Not next year or next month. This is it — this is the moment.
YES! YOU CAN
I know you can raise major gifts, because I’ve taught thousands of fundraisers just like you to successfully raise 4, 5 and 6 figure gifts. I’ve seen it over and over again.
I’m not going to minimize the challenges we face. COVID really did a number on the nonprofit sector. But there are still so many people out there who want to help.
