Services Overview

Whether you need expert support with strategy, an audit of your fundraising performance or some help with your day-to-day fundraising, you’re in good hands.

Some charities opt for help with a specific area of fundraising, such as grant-writing support, setting up a legacy programme or a review of their individual giving. 

For others, it’s the strategic support they most need. This could include doing an audit to see how well your fundraising is performing, helping you develop a fundraising strategy or simply providing some expert guidance and advice.

Fundraising strategy

Investing in some support to develop your fundraising strategy will pay for itself many times over.

I will work with you to create a robust fundraising strategy that provides the roadmap for success that you need. Whether you have a strategy that needs revising, or are starting from scratch, I can help you create a plan that will help you fundraise more effectively, communicate powerfully and raise those all-important funds.

Fundraising Audit

Think of this as a fundraising MOT. If you need an expert pair of eyes to review your fundraising performance, a fundraising audit may be just what you need.

Working with you, your team and the wider staff team, I will provide an impartial review of how your fundraising is going, along with some practical, workable recommendations for taking your fundraising to the next level.

Trust fundraising

Raising funds from grant-making foundations is hugely competitive. But if done right, trust income can have a transformative effect on your income and sustainability.

Whether you have a seasoned Trust Fundraiser on board, or are totally new to trusts and grants, I can help you develop a trust fundraising programme that delivers results.

Individual giving

As a charity donor myself and an experienced individual giving fundraiser, I can help you develop an individual giving programme that raises funds and friends for your charity and results in long-term supporters who are passionate about your work.

Legacy Fundraising

This is an area that many smaller charities in particular feel daunted by. And having recently rewritten my will, I know what a big thing it is to leave a bequest to charity. I will work with you to understand your supporters better and to create a legacy proposition that is inspiring and compelling.

Major Donors

Inspiring high net worth individuals to make a game-changing donation to your charity is no mean feat. Guiding you through the process, I will help you develop a major donor programme that will enable you to inspire philanthropic support and will provide long-term, mutually beneficial partnerships for you with high-net-worth individuals.

Coaching, Training and Mentoring

Demand for fundraising coaching, training and mentoring has grown rapidly in recent years.  Some charities opt for a one-off workshop on a specific area, such as trust fundraising or legacy fundraising. Others are interested in 1:1 or small group coaching or mentoring over a longer period. Whichever service you need, an investment in your fundraisers or team will reap lasting rewards.
