If you would like to find out more about how we can tailor our services to meet your needs, please contact us via the email address or telephone number below.
Our approach will be tailor-made to suit your needs and priorities, but also to maximise chances of success with the funder or donor. As Member of the Institute of Fundraising Steve is fully signed up to their Codes of Fundraising Practice and Code of Conduct. Contact us if you’d like to discuss what we can do.
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 and will do all we can to ensure the quality of every application we prepare for you.
Whether its public sector grants or tenders, we can identify suitable opportunities for your group as they are announced then draft competitive applications or tenders.
We can work with you to identify and approach businesses for cash donations or a sponsorship 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.
Provided you have the contacts, we can organise an annual, one-off or capital appeal based on writing a compelling proposition to encourage donations. 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.
We can prepare a Legacy Giving campaign strategy, and work with you to identify donor prospects who can be encouraged to consider remembering your group in their wills, perhaps also forming them into a Legacy Society.

We are delighted to work with Steve Wiseman and Associates, and for them to be in our fundraising team. When I was looking for a fundraiser I wanted someone who was based in East Anglia, therefore knew the counties, and who worked with charities and understood their requirements. Steve Wiseman and Associates have more than met our expectations, are easy to work with and very friendly! We look forward to a continuing relationship.
