Client Testimonial

Whilst completing the Major Gifts Mastery Programme at Bright Spot, Lynda was assigned as my coach. It was amazing to be paired with someone who understood major donor fundraising in an animal welfare charity setting.


Lynda is full of creativity, experience, insight, and empathy - I'm indebted to Lynda for her continued support even after the programme finished and ideas shared on how to engage and wow donors.


Thank you, Lynda - you are pawsitively fantastic!
