Our range of Fundraising Services include everything you may need to help you start up or grow your charity or social enterprise. Since we began, a decade ago, we have raised approximately 6 million pounds of funding and investment for our clients. We have built new funding relationships that continue to support our clients and have helped design and develop new projects to help them meet the needs of the community.
We have a successful track record in writing successful funding applications to a wide variety of Trusts and Foundations, including corporate trusts and government funders such as the National Lottery Community Fund and Garfield Weston Foundation. We provide a tried and tested fully outsourced service. We become an extended part of your team, working closely with you which enables us to write and submit the highest quality applications, giving you the best chance of success.
Knowing where to go for funding is time consuming and challenging. We hold a bespoke database of funding leads which we have built over the last 10 years, together with subscriptions to many diverse funding data sources. We will produce a bespoke funding research report and database so you can prioritise the best funders to approach and manage the application process.
Having a clear Fundraising Strategy provides you with an opportunity to consider all fundraising methods available to you and choose the most suitable ones for your charity. Our Fundraising Strategy Package involves us working with you to apply a systematic approach to planning, implementing, and evaluating fundraising efforts in order to generate financial support for your charity.
Our Fundraising Strategy includes a clear outline of your target income, a fundraising audit – to identify your donor base, the most effective fundraising methods and a practical fundraising delivery plan.
If you run a Community Interest Company (CIC)* or a small charity and are looking for a Boost to your fundraising, we have developed a package of support just for you. It includes a funding pipeline and Case for Support, and 6 fundraising mentoring sessions to ensure you are ready to take control of your future funding needs.
*The service for CIC's is delivered in partnership with Adam Clarke one of our Associate Consultants https://www.adamclarke.net/ who provides this package to you.
