7 & 8-FIGURE INCOME

There are over 160,000 charities in the UK. The majority of these will never reach a six-figure turnover. Even fewer, less than 4%, will generate a seven-figure annual income.


Our preferred approach is to work strategically with you, where our goal is to drive your charity up to that seven-figure threshold and beyond. We believe that thousands more charities could join this higher group of charities by having a longer-term focus. While you are unlikely to rise to the size of the mega-charities, by raising your income sights you can significantly increase the breadth and range of your charitable work.

To arrange a preliminary chat where we can assess where you are in terms of revenue-raising, drop us a line.
