The track record of our Directors in Church and Cathedral fundraising is second to none.
This practical understanding of what works, enables us to design and deliver innovative programmes to fund new facilities, the maintenance of fabric, provision of music and mission outreach.
"It has been a privilege and a pleasure to work with Amy at Peterborough Cathedral. Not only is she totally professional, but she also brings great energy, enthusiasm and inter-personal skills to every project with which she is involved."
The Reverend Canon Bruce Ruddock, Canon Precentor, Peterborough Cathedral
"Despite speaking weekly, if not daily, in front of hundreds of people, I found the prospect of asking people for money, face to face, somewhat daunting. However, through her professional guidance, Amy gave us the tools and the confidence we needed to personally ask for the six and seven-figure gifts required in our Appeal"
The Very Reverend Christopher Armstrong, Dean, Blackburn Cathedral
"I have worked with Amy for the past year and cannot recommend her highly enough. Amy has added considerable strategic input into a major capital appeal at St Albans Cathedral and she is able to draw on a wealth of experience. Amy is creative, an excellent copywriter and has strong Trust and Foundation experience"
Helen Gray, Development Manager, St Albans Cathedral
"I had no experience as a fundraiser when I began working with Chris at Rochester as his Campaign Assistant. Now 11 years on, I look back and see how important Chris’s experience and knowledge were to my development as a fundraising professional. The lessons that I learnt then, remain important to me now"
Lynne Bax, Development Officer, Rochester Cathedral
"Amy's guidance on re-branding the Cathedral enabled us to launch major plans for the re-development of the Island’s Cathedral, presenting our work in a highly professional way. This foundation enabled us to begin our fundraising operation with confidence. Guided by Amy's fundraising methodology, we are seeing the fruits of our labour and our projects are taking shape. Its been a real challenge, but we’re so glad we took the bold step, with Amy's help, to fundraise in earnest"
The Very Reverend Nigel Godfrey, Dean, Cathedral Isle of Man
"Chris Goldie was asked to give professional support to St Michael's Church, Betchworth in a major fundraising campaign which was working towards commissioning a new pipe organ, multi- purpose vestry space, disabled access and toilet. The campaign had started in 2007 and by 2010 had run out of ideas of how the target was ever going to be achieved. Chris brought common sense and expertise which really helped to get us back on track when we were beginning to doubt our ability to raise the money needed. Now in 2016 the work is all complete. The New Pipe Organ, dedicated in 2014, has greatly enhanced the worship in the church and the new extra space has been used in a versatile way not only for choir assembly but also has a quiet place for prayer during the week." - The Reverend Carol Coslett, Rector, St Michael's Betchworth.
