What We Do

How Can We Help You?

There are lots of ways we can help you get the most out of high value fundraising programmes and grow your income. Here are some ideas to get you started.

Are you after a new fundraising strategy or a review of the existing major donor programme but don’t have the capacity or expertise to deliver it in-house? Or, considering a capital campaign and want an external feasibility study or help with the plan? Maybe it’s time to refresh your stewardship programme to keep your supporters close? Or, is the time is right for a new mid-value product?

We can help with all aspects of high value relationship fundraising, building new programmes and strategies that are based on robust research, objective analysis and insight, plus years of hands-on, practical past experience.

We know it can be lonely as a senior or lone fundraiser juggling a myriad of priorities and challenges. We have been there. Our flexible strategic support and coaching gives you a safe space and a critical friend with whom to talk through ideas, problem solve or simply put things in perspective. We will be objective and straight-talking but kind and supportive too - and highly confidential.

When a key fundraising leader decides it’s time to move on either permanently or on a temporary basis, it can have serious implications for the teams they manage and delivery of financial results. At critical moments like these, an experienced interim Director or Head of Team can be just what you need.

We provide reassuringly experienced, temporary cover to bridge the gap, working alongside members of the permanent team.

Occasionally, you may require additional senior fundraising capacity to help deliver key projects through senior volunteers. You want flexibility, gravitas and a safe pair of hands, without a full-time, permanent staff resource. You can trust us to work with your Trustees, Appeal Board members and Development Committees, engaging their networks on your behalf, representing your organisation’s interest at all times.

An external facilitator and “expert” can make all the difference in persuading a Board to get more actively involved in fundraising.

We work with you to create bespoke training sessions, facilitating discussions with senior voluntary and executive leadership - delivering agreed messages and getting things moving.

We are also comfortable interviewing key supporters on a range of topics, including probing their philanthropic interests, willingness to make contributions and map out their personal and professional networks.

We love working with smaller organisations too.

We plan projects to make the most of your limited resources. We adapt our methods and outputs to respond to the ways you work and maximising the value of your investment in us.

We will help create a case for support toolkit or trust application template that can be adapted and used in different ways to suit specific purposes. Or provide templates, plans and interview questions that you can roll out in your own time. All designed to get you up and running quickly and cost effectively.

Some projects need a variety of experts to come together and collaborate to get the results you need.

We are a team of talented associates with complementary fundraising skills and experience.

Between us, we cover pretty much every income stream and discipline you need, including case for support preparation, prospect research, quantitative analysis and qualitative insight gathering across legacy marketing, corporate fundraising, capital campaigns, philanthropy and trusts fundraising. We have specialist colleagues in individual giving and community fundraising too.

You can be sure you are getting the best, most up-to-date advice from expert fundraisers who pride themselves on doing a good job for you.
