Helping your fundraising team build the skills and strategies you need to raise more major gifts for your nonprofit

To hit your ambitious fundraising goals, and create the consistent, reliable revenue growth you need, it’s more important than ever to focus on the right things, and make sure you’re using a proven approach. 

But today’s competitive hiring market means that you likely have team members with tons of potential, but less hands-on major gift experience. 

And you know that with major donor relationships, the stakes are too high to leave it to chance…

Raise more money with confidence


Chances are, you’re here for at least one of three reasons:

✅You’re ready for a comprehensive strategy to raise a lot more money from individual giving and major gifts 

✅ You need your fundraising team to have the tools and skills they need to meet - and exceed! - your nonprofit’s ambitious goals

✅ Your fundraising has hit a ceiling, and you want a proven plan for consistent, reliable revenue growth

Perfect. Find out how we can work together.


I'm Emma Lewzey, and I’m a veteran of major gift campaigns ranging from $5M to $200M.

I teach a proven framework based on 25+ years of frontline fundraising experience across every organization size and type – including arts, education, health and human services sectors.

What clients say...


Thanks to Emma my staff is better trained on Major Gifts. We have identified over 75 MG prospects in our database! I cannot recommend Emma highly enough for anyone looking for an expert fundraiser who more than delivers what she promises!


Bringing in Emma’s fundraising savvy was one of the best moves we ever made. She quickly honed in on our needs and created shifts in thinking and action, with a level of professionalism that is becoming increasingly rare. Emma sees the big picture, is truly invested and a downright pleasure to work with.

You might think your non-profit budget can’t afford fundraising consulting. We decided that we couldn’t afford not to.


Since joining Major Gift Master Plan, I’ve been promoted to Director of Development, my team surpassed their annual goals, and I love the coaching piece of my new role. Thank you Emma - my biggest concern before the program was not being confident enough. You taught us to be ourselves, and trust our skills.
