Creating an impact for the future

Northumbria University’s Alumni and Partnership team engaged Philanthropy Company in January 2021 to provide a considered assessment of the levels of potential and readiness to conduct focused fundraising in support of our Widening Access and Participation work, both during the pandemic and in preparation for the future.

The Philanthropy Company team’s expertise, including the report that they produced, the recommendations they made and the key messaging that was developed, helped shape the first iterations and the successful launch of our Higher Education Without Barriers campaign (January 2022). The campaign has since achieved £3.2 million and supported over 2,000 students and helped to underpin ‘social mobility’ as a driving ambition as part of the new University Strategy.

The impact of their work continues to resonate throughout our fundraising and is a testament to the positive, long-term legacy Philanthropy Company leaves on its clients. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again or recommend the team to other charities.
