FOCUS : FUNDRAISING EXPERTISE WHEN AND WHERE YOU NEED IT MOST

Perfect for charities who recognise the benefits of successful trust fundraising campaigns but either can’t afford or do not need full-time cover, FOCUS gives you total control over when and how you invest in our expertise.

Step 1: Build the service that you need:

  1. Assistance with a single funding proposal

  2. Fundraising efforts concentrated on one project

  3. A detailed funding research audit for your organisation

  4. Mentoring of internal staff to deliver trust fundraising

Step 2: We will visit your organisation to advise and agree on the best course of action to achieve your aims.

You only pay for the fundraising expertise you receive - below are a selection of service options which may apply directly to your organisation.  Focus however is designed to be flexible enough to meet your needs exactly - please contact us to discuss in more detail.

Research Audit

A full breakdown of all past and potential trust funders for your organisation complete with details of their funding priorities, application deadlines and a proposed course of action.  If you want to consolidate the fundraising you have already carried out, or find out how many trusts will fund your organisation’s work, our Research Audit is the best place to start.

Proposal Writing

Provide us with all the details of your project and we’ll write a high quality trust fundraising proposal tailored to the specific application requirements of an agreed target funder.  You can then either ask us to approach other trusts with this proposal or use it yourself to carry out your own fundraising.

Mentoring

For organisations wishing to develop the fundraising skills of existing staff, we can provide tailored mentoring programmes.  No prior knowledge of trust fundraising is required and mentoring can be combined with any other Affordable Fundraiser service to enable you to start raising funds as soon as possible.

For a year-round trust fundraising service incorporating a full trust audit, ongoing research and proposals for all your organisation’s work,  please look at our FULL-TIME service.
