Trusts and foundations
Helping you engage with the right funders
We’re experts in trust and foundation fundraising. Whether you’re developing a grant fundraising strategy or simply need feedback on a bid you’ve written in-house, we can help.
Getting your strategy right
We can help you make sure your grant fundraising strategy is fit for purpose. Our experienced team will ask you all the right questions: are you making the most of your networks? Are you writing the most effective bids? Are you asking for the right amount? We’ll review your strategy and identify ways to strengthen it.
Reviewing your bids
Ready to hit ‘submit’ on an important bid you’ve written in-house? Wait! Increase your chances of success by getting some external feedback first. Think of us as your critical friend. We can be on hand to help you make your application as rigorous and compelling as possible and to bring out the best in your in-house team.
Writing your bids
If you don’t have the capacity to write bids at the moment, let us write them for you. We can prepare funding applications and tender responses for a wide range of funders in the UK and beyond.
We will work closely with you throughout the process. First, we’ll review your past applications and find out about current projects that need funding. We’ll then gather the right, relevant information needed for a successful application. We’ll prepare drafts of the application for you to review before incorporating your feedback into a final version, ready for you to approve and submit. If you need to clarify any points about the application process, we can speak to funders on your behalf.
You might need help with the occasional bid, or you might be looking for ongoing support. We can assign a specialist bid writer who’ll get to know you and your organisation and work with you on an ad hoc or ongoing basis. This writer can prepare some or all your bids – whatever works best for you.
