Testimonial Ambitious About Autism

“Smart, experienced, knowledgeable, and always tell it as they see it.

You know you’re getting quality thinking with Charity Consultants.”

John Trampleasure, Director of Fundraising and External Affairs, Ambitious About Autism

We begin by spending half a day with you at no cost. From this we quickly develop an understanding of how we can assist.

Fundraising consultancy is a core part of our work, with Major Gifts a speciality, but we will also conduct a full audit of feasibility, campaign development communications and wider strategy.

There will always be a strong focus on:

  • why people should give money
  • exactly where it will come from
  • exactly when it will arrive

What follows depends on the precise brief but typically follows this path:

Strategy, feasibility assessment or audit and present

to CEO or board

Address strategic capacity and communication issues preventing fundraising

Research

potential supporters

Build fundraising leadership and

staff capacity

Implementation

We have access to in-depth knowledge and hands-on experience across the whole spectrum and will bring in expert consultants to deliver a holistic, pan-disciplinary service responding to your specific needs.

We are extremely open and honest and, while tactful, will always tell it as we see it.

We usually start with a free half day planning or consultancy session.
