A Gifted partnership starts with getting to know you and your fundraising story.

We are here to give you all the support you need to meet your fundraising challenge, whatever that happens to be. Our team share decades of experience in helping Third Sector organisations to achieve their fundraising goals; from guiding smaller charities through the feasibility stages of a project, to directing multi-million-pound capital campaigns and supporting innovative best practice across the profession.

So, whether you’re looking to launch a new charity, build much-needed facilities or enhance the programmes you already deliver, why not find out more about the services we offer.

Creating an exceptional fundraising partnership

Our partnership begins with an understanding of your current fundraising position. This means systematically addressing a series of key questions:

1) Where are you now and what are others doing? Through methodical data analysis and comparative review, we help you to objectively understand your position and identify where you want to be next.

2) Where do you need to focus your fundraising and how will you find the leadership required? As independent partners, we enable you to test the fundraising resources you will need to raise major gifts. This involves a qualitative process that helps to identify where the money is and what influential volunteer leadership is available to help you raise it.

3) Where are you going? An evaluation of these answers enables us to address this key key question and map out your future fundraising strategy. This includes outline income and expenditure projections, details of key audiences, timeframes, an assessment of risks.

4) How will you get there? Once your leadership group has reviewed and properly understood these findings, this work is condensed into an actionable plan which sets out the way forward.

5) What support do you need? If required, we can then provide the most cost-effective consultancy solution, from full-time campaign management to periodic fundraising support.


"We have a project that we need to fund as soon as possible. How do we know what's achievable?"

The feasibility study is the best place to begin. It's a qualitative process that assesses the readiness of your project for fundraising, identifies sources of funding and clarifies the volunteer leadership needed to move your plans forward. Conducted by one of our Directors and a team of researchers, the Study will establish where the money is and how best to secure it. It also enables you to make refinements to your case for support so that it's attractive and relevant to major givers and the wider community.

Feasability Studies


"Having tested the feasibility of our plans, how do we now implement them as efficiently as possible to raise the funds we need?"

Volunteer-led, person-to-person capital campaigns for a specific project or programme are designed to raise as much money as possible, as quickly as possible from (initially) the fewest number of prospects. These campaigns demand detailed planning, the design of an attractive and urgent ‘Case’, clear prospect identification and the enlistment of influential, volunteer leaders to give and get gifts at the levels needed to achieve the target. Working alongside your fundraising staff, delivering a major-gift or capital campaign usually involves the on-site placement of one or more of our experienced campaign managers.

Fundraising Strategy Reviews & Development Audits

"How can we make sure our organisation is ready and operating efficiently so that we can meet our fundraising targets?"

The Development Audit takes a disciplined approach to assessing your existing fundraising performance. The process tests the efficacy of your income generation techniques to build and enhance donor relationships. It also thoroughly scrutinises your established processes to strengthen and maintain the trust of donors. Our Directors lead a professional team that can conduct an intensive, one-day audit of a particular funding stream through to a more comprehensive audit of a complete fundraising and development plan.

Fundraising Strategy Reviews


"Our in-house team needs occasional guidance and support. How can we access the best advice when we need it?"

However experienced and knowledgeable your fundraising team is, there will be occasions when they could benefit from advice and guidance to supplement their own skills. Gifted’s Directors and Consultants can provide the required expertise on an ad-hoc basis, as and when you need it most. Whether you’re wanting to get one aspect of your fundraising programme back on track or you require expert support to fulfil a particular fundraising ambition, Gifted can tailor a bespoke package of periodic consultancy designed to help your achieve your fundraising goals.

Periodic Consulting


"How do we set up a sustainable legacy programme with the capacity to transform the future of our organisation?"

Designing an appropriate legacy giving programme can provide the sort of financial security you never thought possible. With the right guidance and support, you can be confident that your givers feel comfortable and at peace with their ‘final gift’. You’ll also have the tools you need to implement a robust stewardship programme that will forge the strongest of relationships with your supporters.



"How do I ensure any new campaign tools will work with current branding and boost the success of our fundraising programme?"

Gifted are specialists in the creation and design of bespoke campaign materials from overall campaign branding, campaign websites and literature to online giving and event promotion. We also can conduct a communication audit to ensure that any new campaign materials will work hand-in-hand with your existing branding and enable a campaign to be as successful as it can be.
