Major gift fundraising: We look forward to unleashing the power of your nonprofit’s story and to giving you the tools and confidence to invite your donors to make the projects, programs and dreams they care about come true. If that doesn’t sound like “fundraising”—well, good.

Named a top 25 fundraising consultant by Philanthropy Media in 2016, Diane Remin is the Founder and President of MajorDonors.com. An acclaimed consultant and trainer, she founded MajorDonors.com in 2010 to help small-to-mid-sized organizations with limited resources boost their revenues, with an eye toward major gifts. Her clients, a number of whom have no dedicated development staff, have raised tens of millions of dollars.
MajorDonors.com helps nonprofits launch major gift and legacy giving programs, provides capital campaign counsel, and delivers workshops on topics ranging from “Building a High-Performance Board” to “Conversation, not Presentation: Get Your Donors Talking and Raise More Money.”
Following her undergraduate work at Carnegie-Mellon University, Diane received an M.A. Ed. from George Washington University and an M.B.A. from Boston University.
The seeds for MajorDonors.com were planted years ago when Diane started volunteering and becoming increasingly engaged with the nonprofit sector. Her first nonprofit board experience, for a child welfare agency, coincided with the organization’s first-ever capital campaign. The experience prompted a career change.
MajorDonors.com combines Diane’s nonprofit board, consulting, and fundraising expertise with her business background.
Diane currently serves on the board of Boston Area Gleaners, which is headquartered in Acton, MA. She is a member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals and the Planned Giving Group of New England. Diane likes to point out that “giving is good for your health!”
