Fundraising strategy and advice that amplifies your ambition

Does your fundraising strategy need more direction and impact?

The for-purpose sector is a highly competitive environment and most organisations operate without sufficient resources to meet their market needs. You may find yourself increasingly turning to philanthropy to fill gaps in much-needed funding while struggling to make an impact. That is because the fundraising landscape has changed. Philanthropy today requires both sophisticated and practical fundraising programs that resonate with the market, powered by leaders who think strategically and are willing to take active roles in attracting investment. But where to start?

We work with organisations to build strategic and sustainable fundraising streams through fundraising assessment and strategy. Our clients span many sectors including arts and culture, advocacy organisations, health, education, environment, disability and social services. With the right support, it is more than possible to go from filling a budget gap to achieving transformational impact. Already we have seen tens of millions of dollars in philanthropic impact achieved using this approach.
