We support charities and schools in a variety of ad hoc ways. Bid-writing, fundraising reviews, prospect research, training and short-term staff cover are some of the activities that we are called in for.
Outsourcing a fundraising activity is also becoming increasingly popular. With office costs averaging approximately £5,000 per annum per employee, you will likely find that it is more effective, both in costs and income-generation, to use outside support.

We were brought in to develop the Brian Cox Summer School which had been running for four years but was run on a very small scale. National foundations, FTSE-100 companies and international conglomerates are now involved and the initiative extends across the country.
This disability charity needed more funders to approach. We identified a variety of trusts, companies and local sources for them to access.

Tell us your needs and we'll try and come up with a solution that suits your needs and budget.
FUNDRAISING EXPERTISE AT APPRENTICE-LEVEL PRICES
We typically operate four-person teams when undertaking long-term assignments. The team leader will have operated at director level and be joined by a manager and two executive-level staff. This works out far cheaper and more effective for you than employing individual employees or consultants.
