Major Donor Masterclass Series – Jo’burg and Cape Town

The clock is ticking on our upcoming essentials of major donor fundraising sessions. We’ve kept the class sizes small so that the impact on your work can be huge. 

The upside: Lots of opportunity for intense learning and lively conversation.

The downside: Very limited space that is filling up fast.

We want to make it as convenient as possible for you take this critical learning home with you and put it to use right away at your organisation. Your options:

  • Full-day boot camp or half-day workshop
  • Fledging major gifts programme or one that needs updating
  • Cape Town or Johannesburg
  • Price points that fit your budget – whatever it is

This is a rare opportunity to learn about major gifts from Tony Myers, one of the world’s most recognised and successful major donor specialists.
