I had the pleasure of working alongside Gareth at The Trussell Trust during a period of upheaval. Gareth was a great team player, always willing to help others and using his wealth of fundraising experience to shine a light on difficult situations. Gareth has the rare ability to think strategically whilst having an excellent understanding of the tactical fundraising tools that enable a strategic plan to be implemented. I have no recommendation in recommending him as he is both professionally very effective and personally a great colleague to work with.
Thanks to Sarah’s work with People’s Trust for Endangered Species over the past year, we have boosted our skills and confidence and have effective systems in place to fundraise from grant-making trusts. Sarah helped us to write trust applications that are clear, concise and compelling. Her help drafting our annual review has greatly enhanced how we present our achievements and demonstrate impact.
Working with Gareth is great – he listens and really get to the issues of your situation before bringing his insights and recommendations to find appropriate solutions, as well as works with you and your team to tackle them. The ongoing, regular support from Fundraising Consultants over the past two years has been key – and we’re looking forward to another year of working with Fundraising Consultants.
“We have worked with Sarah for well over a year and the expert service she provides has been everything we were looking for and more. The knowledge she has and her eye for detail have been great. The support has been exceptional and we look forward to working with Sarah as the future unfolds.”
It gives me great pleasure to recommend Gareth and his company Fundraising Consultants Ltd. Gareth and his team of professionals helped Wiltshire Air Ambulance as we scoped out a Capital Appeal for a significant building project. His attention to detail in helping us get to grips with our database, getting it wealth screened and then deciding what to do with that information has been invaluable in helping us to agree “the case for support” and the next phase of the Appeal.
First rate service without the usual London based costs!
“Meningitis Now asked Sarah to do a three day audit of the charity’s trust fundraising. We were so impressed that we asked her to manage trust fundraising on an interim basis. One year later Sarah remains a highly valued member of the team. Her expertise and diligence have combined to achieve great results. She’s successfully secured several major grants and will leave a legacy of improved trust fundraising processes and capabilities. She has built strong relationships with our existing trust supporters, has helped us identify new funding opportunities. Sarah is a pleasure to work with and I thoroughly recommend her.”
“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.”
