How I can help support your charity.
I can help you to assess your current fundraising situation and determine areas for development to ensure sustainability and growth. I have experience in a wide range of fundraising streams, including, but not limited to, Trusts and Foundations, Corporate Partnerships, Community Fundraising, Individual Giving, High Value Donors and Event Fundraising.
I have raised funds for both capital and revenue projects, as well as core costs. I understand the importance of securing unrestricted income and how this helps support a robust reserves policy.
I believe that no area of fundraising should be considered in isolation and in the importance of charities diversifying income streams to ensure that there is not a reliance on one source alone. This should be done with a structured and strategic approach that will have a long term impact on your organisation and those you support.
I can work with you to develop organisational, fundraising and marketing strategies; identifying areas for development and helping you plan for growth.
Creating a new strategy should be a process that involves your staff and trustees. I will facilitate key meetings along the way and guide you through. I can help you reflect on past strengths and weaknesses and evaluate new opportunities to determine the best way forward. We can also work together to plan how your strategy will work practically, identifying any staffing needs and helping to mentor where required.
Marketing goes hand in hand with fundraising, and it is important to establish and implement coherent messages, which work across all your materials. I can work closely with designers to create a strong website that works for your organisation, printed materials and electronic publications.
I can help you to develop and grow your social media presence and identify the best platforms for your organisation, from Twitter to Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn. I am able to write press releases and liaise with the press so that your messages get out into the public domain.
Good governance is essential to the effectiveness of any charity. It enables your charity to comply with the law and relevant regulations. It also helps ensure that the charity’s work is focused on achieving its vision.
I can help you to develop effective policies and procedures to enable you to make the right decisions and manage risk so that your charity can have a strong and sustainable future.
I am able to support your board of trustees to adhere to the Charity Governance Code, so that you can develop high standards of governance.
