How can we help?

Restructuring or reviewing an area of work

Ask yourself one question. Can you honestly say, hand on heart, that you’re getting the best out of every role in your team or organisation? Is every penny of the charity’s funds being put to best use? If the answer is no, or you are even unsure, then it is very likely that there is a better way of doing things. We can help you to review your current structure or activities and make recommendations for improvements. We will also provide an action plan that will make any changes as painless as possible.

Reviewing or writing a fundraising strategy

We can review all of your fundraising activity and return on investment, then look at how to maximise your gains in the future. We’ll create a fundraising strategy that is clear, workable and easy to implement.

Reviewing or writing a marketing strategy

We can look at the impact of your current marketing strategy. We’ll provide incisive observations and see what you could achieve with just a few strategic tweaks.

Fundraising through Trusts and Foundations

We often find that smaller charities can’t afford the luxury of a dedicated member of staff to apply for grants. This is where we come in. We can help you write cases for support and cross reference your projects against our database of over 1,000 charitable trusts and foundations. We’ll make your application process a lot more effective and efficient. If you would like more information about how our fundraising consultants in Cornwall can help, please get in touch.

Generating income through legacies

Sometimes, people don’t leave a legacy to a charity, not because they don’t want to, but because they don’t know how. We will provide you with an action plan that will provide your patrons with a clear understanding of what they need to do if they want to leave a legacy to your charity. We can also help to set up a free Wills scheme for your organisation.

Legacy administration

If your fundraiser is administering legacies, consider giving this responsibility to us. Once you’ve been notified of a legacy, the money is pretty much guaranteed – as such, fundraisers should be concentrating on where the next pot of funding is coming from, not on the minutiae of legacy administration. We have many years of experience in administering both simple and complex legacies.

Cases for support

We can help you identify those areas of work that will be attractive to different types of funders. Sometimes a simple change in the language you use can make a funder stand up and take notice. We’ll show you what works and what doesn’t work to make your cases for support as strong and attractive as they should be.

We can also help you with corporate fundraising, events, membership and community fundraising. If you would like more information as to what our fundraising consultants in Cornwall and beyond, can do for your charity, get in touch for a quick consultation.
