Based in Cambridge, Alzheimer’s Research UK is the UK’s leading dementia research charity, working to bring out the first life-changing dementia treatment by 2025. The charity was looking for an external review of its fundraising performance, support to develop the fundraising strategy and some coaching and mentoring for the Trust Fundraising team.

Why Fundraising Consultants Ltd?

We were selected for the work because of our strong track record with other medical research charities and our experience working with Fundraising Directors, senior leaders and Trustees. 

What we did

Working with the Director of Fundraising and senior team, we helped develop a robust three-year fundraising strategy. We were then asked to provide hands-on support in the Trust Fundraising team, coaching staff who were new to fundraising in areas such as bid writing, reporting, telephone skills and relationship fundraising. 

What the client says

“Working with Fundraising Consultants Ltd has been a real game-changer for us. They listen and really get to the heart of the situation before bringing their insights and recommendations. The ongoing, regular support from Fundraising Consultants over the past two years has been hugely helpful. Thank you”. Marie Janson, Director of Development, Alzheimer’s Research UK.

“Working with Fundraising Consultants has made a real difference to income and helped us shift up a gear. Within a short time, we secured a six-figure grant from a funder we hadn’t previously been successful with, we had developed a strategy we felt confident about, we were taking a more targeted approach and our bid writing was stronger.  Our trust income is now higher than ever before and we’ve received several major grants.” Amy Tatum, Major Gifts Officer, Alzheimer’s Research UK.
