Outsourced Fundraising Management Service
Identify and access new sources of funding with a great value bespoke package of services. Our outsourced fundraising service typically focusses on Funder Prospect Research and Bid Writing, often with some strategic development input or staff mentoring as required.
This is our most popular service and proves highly effective for our clients. Our fundraising consultants undertake full management of grant and contract fundraising, incorporating on-going prospect research, bid writing and guidance on strategic planning. Close contact is maintained with the client throughout via email and telephone as well as attendance at regular meetings to review progress and agree future priorities and strategy.
We have successfully managed campaigns ranging from small appeals to £Multi-Million capital projects and we have an excellent track record of success.
Typically the service involves:
Familiarisation and Planning
An initial desk review is undertaken focussing on your website, report & accounts, strategy, plans, recent funding bids and results and any other relevant materials. This is usually followed by a planning and familiarisation visit so we can get to know you and your organisation.
Research funding opportunities
Subject to the agreed focus research can involve grant making trusts and foundations, other grant funding sources, contract opportunities through local authorities, national statutory bodies and EU sources, international foundations, corporate donors and high net worth individuals. The results are presented in an easy to view summary format to enable us to review with the client and agree priorities.
Bid Writing / Bid Review
We agree which services or projects are best suited to the opportunities available. We can offer innovative ideas on project design and presentation to make your proposals really stand out. We then work in close partnership with you to develop high quality templates and individual bids in line with your organisations objectives and matching funder priorities and requirements.
With any contract we aim to engage closely with our clients to support the wider development of their organisation in a range of ways, utilising the benefits of our experience of working with a huge number of charities.
