Kate worked with SHS (School Home Support) in 2016 and 2017. Working alongside the senior team and key trustees, Kate undertook a robust assessment of how ready SHS were to invest in a major donor programme, alongside other competing priorities. Kate also helped the fundraising team to develop a refreshed fundraising strategy that would provide SHS with a sustainable financial platform for  growth in the years ahead.

“Kate has a huge amount of experience, expertise and enthusiasm – a genuine desire to help her clients, to solve problems and to offer optimum value.

I engaged Kate to provide external strategic support and have found this to be very helpful indeed. I have very much appreciated that Kate has brought insight from her practical experience at a range of different scenarios and causes to various challenges that we have worked through together. Kate’s style is supportive and friendly, challenging at times and other times very helpful in stepping back and getting perspective on particular issues. I have no hesitation in recommending Kate and Beneficial Fundraising.”
