Our focus is on private-site fundraising, most often for larger charities seeking national campaigns. Our fundraisers are quality driven – true experts in engaging with the public to produce lifetime value for our charity partners, and equally skilled at sharing their passion for a cause and securing loyal support.
With our roots in face-to-face and over a decade of experience, we’ve built our reputation on strong client relationships backed by results. We’re proud to be the best in the sector for attrition rates and support this with a guarantee that secures your ROI.
Our fundraisers are fantastic at recruiting new supporters. They don’t sign up just anyone but the right donors who genuinely believe in the cause and will give lasting support.
We achieve extremely low attrition levels as a result of strategy, our approach to venues, supporter experience and training, and back this with an unrivalled attrition guarantee.
We blend the use of technology with traditional face-to-face, from contactless direct debits and the use of SMS and QR codes, to using video to enhance the fundraising pitch.
Direct debit or a legacy referral, donate now or start a longer-term supporter journey. We strive to offer a personalised experience and let supporters give in a way that suits them.
We’ll always invest in the most suitable sites that yield quality supporters. Our expert knowledge and understanding of the market allow us to tailor campaigns to greatest effect.
Exhibitions and events
We stand out from the crowd at any event, bringing creative flair on how best to maximise the space and always crafting a unique and immersive supporter experience.
We place strong emphasis on recruiting and retaining the best fundraising talent. Our team tend to be mature, and are always responsible, engaging and professional.
The supporter journey is key so our inhouse team make personalised welcome calls and provide the option for rolling reactivation and upgrade programmes for supporters.
My work with a new charity starts in advance of the campaign launch, and through more strategic-led conversations and project planning tools we develop a timeframe to work to that includes scope for creativity and an appraisal of what’s worked before and what hasn’t. Seamless communication is everything and the key to communication isn’t simply the frequency – it’s about transparency and providing an honest account and explanation. CATRIONA MARVEL
