Fundraising Consultancy

Do you want to boost your fundraising potential?

 

Key areas of fundraising support include:


Vision and strategy

Every fundraising activity needs a purpose, clearly articulated, persuasive to donors, and authentic to you. We encourage bold vision with realistic goals and our expertise in the sector will allow you to fully scope the potential for fundraising before embarking on any type of income generation programme. We can help you align your purpose with your priorities, set realistic goals, and describe your case for support in ways that will resonate strongly with donors.

Research and analysis

If you’re seeking to step up your fundraising activity, it is vital to scope out your required resources and potential returns. Do you have strong evidence of need? Have you established a viable prospect base? Are your key stakeholders well informed and supportive of your ambitions? Do you have the time and in-house expertise to launch and sustain your campaign? We can help by undertaking a feasibility study that will offer you reliable insights and advice to define the right strategy, both for you and for your prospects.

Prospects and data

Prospect research forms the foundation of major gift fundraising. We can help you find potential supporters, understand their giving potential, and plan your engagement approach. Once you have your prospects list, we can make sure that you have the right data management, systems and processes, not only to ensure compliance with the law but also to best coordinate your relationships and harness the potential of your communications.

Regular giving and major gifts

The donations from your regular giving programmes may be small, but your alumni, members, friends or supporters are the foundations of your fundraising work. We can offer the tips, tools and techniques to help you increase this donor base, retain their giving loyalties, and identify potential for inspiring larger gifts from your regular donors.

When you are ready to start attracting and engaging donors with the potential for making major gifts you’ll need strategic support at the highest levels, as well as skilled organisational capacity to connect, communicate and negotiate with the right people at the right time. We can help with the whole process, from identifying prospects to securing board-level buy-in, and from devising strategic approaches to talking on your behalf.
