What we do

Since 1990, Charity Consultants Ltd has provided professional, specialised, high-quality consultancy advice in planning and implementing fundraising campaigns.

Whilst we have wide-ranging expertise in most of the 32 main fundraising disciplines, Charity Consultants specialises in:

  • Capital campaigns and major donor programmes
  • Strategic planning & communications
  • Fundraising consultancy
  • Feasibility studies & audits
  • Trusts and corporate fundraising
  • Researching your best donor prospects

We begin by spending half a day with you at no cost. From this we quickly develop an understanding of how we can assist.

Fundraising consultancy is a core part of our work, with Major Gifts a speciality, but we will also conduct a full audit of feasibility, campaign development communications and wider strategy.

There will always be a strong focus on

  • why people should give money
  • exactly where it will come from
  • exactly when it will arrive.

What follows depends on the precise brief but typically follows this path:

  • A strategy, feasibility assessment or audit and present to CEO or board
  • Address strategic capacity and communication issues preventing fundraising
  • Research potential supporters
  • Build fundraising leadership and staff capacity
  • Implementation

We have access to in-depth knowledge and hands-on experience across the whole spectrum and will bring in expert consultants to deliver a holistic, pan-disciplinary service responding to your specific needs.

We are extremely open and honest and, while tactful, will always tell it as we see it.

We usually start with a free half day planning or consultancy session. Contact us to book a free session with Andrew Thomas, Suzi Morris or one of our specialist associates.
