“I think the strategy is really great – it’s very practical and well thought out. And in contrast to other fundraising strategies I’ve seen consultants develop for me I can actually see us using it to develop our fundraising.” - Alison Bowyer - CEO, Kids in Museums

Not sure how to raise the money you need to achieve your plans? We can provide the support you need!
We can help you find your direction - we've helped arts organisations like Kids in Museums and Brighton & Hove Libraries to write their first fundraising strategy. We've planned large-scale capital appeals for Ely Museum and Salisbury Cathedral. And we've audited the strategies of successful fundraising teams like the Barbican and Yorkshire Sculpture Park to help them take their fundraising to the next level.
“I just want to thank you for the high quality of the report you have produced for us. It contains just the right level of detail for us and I like the way it is presented – it is presented in a way that is very easy to read. You have made sensible recommendations for us and clearly set out the actions we need to take. Thank you!” - Sally McMahon – Head of Libraries & Information Services, Brighton & Hove Libraries
We can help you improve your skills - we've trained arts fundraisers, volunteers, board members and senior managers. We've provided training on topics such as "Making the Ask" and securing Major Gifts, making the most of digital technology, improving your Trust applications and setting up successful individual giving schemes.
“David is a very knowledgeable, professional speaker who puts people instantly at ease with his friendly, approachable manner. He has always been very flexible, clearly explaining concepts in a way that is accessible and easy for all delegates to take away and apply to their own organisations.” - Miranda Rowlands - Project Manager, SHARED Enterprise
We can help you build your confidence - we've coached theatres on approaching major donors. We've mentored visual arts organisations on launching their first crowdfunding campaign. We've supported museums to put their fundraising strategy into action.
