Usually the first piece of work we undertake is an audit of current fundraising or sponsorship activity. The fundraising audit includes a competitor analysis/peer review, thorough analysis of current donors and income needs and identifies fundraising strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.
We are experts in crafting new fundraising strategies for charities and not for profit organisations. Strategies can be designed for one-off fundraising appeals or projects (capital or revenue), campaigns and events, as well as for ongoing revenue needs.
We offer targeted prospect research services, to help our clients to uncover organisations who have the potential to fund or sponsor them. Prior to undertaking research, we ensure we have a thorough understanding of your organisation and your funding needs.
