Vineyard Consulting

Major Gift Fundraising and Campaign consulting & services for nonprofit organizations.


A seasoned and very successful major gift fundraising professional, Sarah Shrewsbury started Vineyard Consulting in 2013 to help nonprofits start or enhance their major gift programs and campaigns.

Working with Vineyard Consulting, clients will benefit from Sarah's over two decades of experience directly raising tens of millions of dollars for nationally recognized nonprofits. This work includes all aspects of raising thousands of 5, 6 & 7 figure major gifts from individuals and family foundations.  

As a consultant, I have helped my clients increase major gift revenue, plan and execute campaigns (from $500k to $5million), run audits of major gift efforts and much more.  Please see Services for more information.

Every organization is unique. Vineyard Consulting's counsel is tailored to each client's particular needs.
