Fundraising Services

Our approach to fundraising will be tailor-made to suit the needs and priorities of your group

Grant making trusts and foundations

We can research and select appropriate trusts and foundations to meet your requirements, then prepare suitable applications for projects, core funding or capital; reflecting your priorities.  We keep up-to-date with new bidding rounds and changes in grant making criteria as they are announced, and we will do all we can to ensure the quality of every application we prepare for you.

Statutory funding – local, national and European

Though many grants are still available, much statutory funding is accessed via tendering to commissioners.   We can identify suitable opportunities for your group as they are announced then draft competitive tenders.

Business sponsorship

We can work with you to identify and approach businesses for cash donations or a sponsorships package. We can design proposals to meet the needs of your group and to attract these businesses, highlighting the benefits to the community and to their brand profile.

Individual donors

We can organise an annual, one-off or capital appeal based on writing a compelling proposition to encourage donations from those known to be in sympathy with your cause. This could include in Memory giving.  Some potential donors of major gifts may be identified, in which case a special approach will be made to them.

Legacy giving

Preparing a legacy giving campaign including suitable promotional materials and working with you to identify donor prospects who can be encouraged to consider remembering your group.  Ongoing relations with donors can be maintained over time, with the establishment of a legacy society as an option.

Fundraising service options

We would be pleased to meet with you to discuss these services further, whether you wish to take stock of fundraising, pursue one or more of the possibilities above, or consider a strategy which integrates all areas over a period.  Through skill, hard work and commitment we will can improve your group’s sustainability.

As members of the Institute of Fundraising we are fully signed up to their Codes of Fundraising Practice and Code of Conduct.
