We started working with Sarah in 2020 to get her help to develop a focused fundraising strategy for the organisation. Through clear communication, insight, experience and a strong dose of reality, we now have a robust fundraising plan in place. We look forward to continuing to work with Sarah over the coming year.
Charmaine is a motivated, dynamic and committed individual with very considerable experience and skills in the voluntary sector, including fundraising, project management, frontline operational youth work, leadership, outcome reporting, preparing cases for support and bid writing. I have worked with Charmaine over the past 6 years during which time she has always worked with enthusiasm, energy and commitment. I have no hesitation in recommending Charmaine for a leading role in any voluntary or fundraising organisation. She is an excellent team player and communicator.
Fundraising Consultants helped Micah Challenge articulate their Case for Support, target the right funders and ensure their funding bids were concise and powerful. We have worked with a number of consultants, many of whom have struggled to ‘get’ what we are really about. Sarah took the time to actively listen to us and quickly grasped the key issues we are facing. They understood the support we required, helping us articulate our work effectively. We greatly appreciated both the speed and quality of their work, and they regularly went the extra mile. We have no hesitation recommending them to others.
Sarah joined halow as an external consultant a couple of years ago, and has been an exceptional asset to our team. She is very professional and experienced and has managed our trusts work very successfully. The strategic advice has been hugely helpful and she is always a pleasure to work with.
The support and input from Sarah and the team has been invaluable. Fundraising Consultants has helped our small social enterprise develop a business plan and a fundraising strategy, draft funding bids, hone our messaging and approach prospective investors. When the work finished we felt more confident, equipped and ready to grow our business sustainably and profitably. Worth every penny and more.
