Widening access and improving the student experience are at the heart of today’s fundraising programmes that not only engage alumni, but the broader community.

Many universities, schools and colleges have development plans covering major building work, teaching and learning space and bursary or scholarship funding. Those that have carefully tested their potential and developed realistic fundraising plans have been able to achieve game-changing goals.

"We’ve been working with Gifted since the inception of our fundraising campaign here at WGSF. Following a feasibility study in 2018, Amy has supported us with ad hoc consulting as we’ve progressed our fundraising programmes. It has been so helpful to have that ‘critical friend’ to meet with or have at the end of the phone, when you need advice, support or guidance."
Cath Worsley, Director of Development, Wakefield Grammar School Foundation

"Andrew Day has been a source of wise counsel and support for our fundraising campaigns at Warwick School, over a number of years. He has given valued strategic oversight and practical guidance throughout and has a huge wealth of experience and understanding of the nuances of fundraising in different environments. Andrew has also given advice and support to the day-to-day operations of the Development Office. Importantly, he has acted as a voice of authority and assurance to our Headmaster and governors that we are 'doing the right things'"
Phillip Rothwell, Director of Development, Warwick Independent Schools Foundation, Deputy Chair IDPE

"Working with Chris Goldie was not only a pleasure but also he brought a real professionalism to our fund raising.  At all times he sought to fully understand our particular ethos and culture and so all fundraising activities fitted in with the school's wider aims. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend working with him."
Mark Bishop, Headmaster, Trinity School, Croydon

"Amy’s energy, enthusiasm and clarity of thought gave the campaign direction and focus. Her drive and optimism ensured that we reached our target well within our schedule and enabled us to raise a further third again. Her commitment led to our success"
