Cumbria Fundraising Consultancy (CFC) provides bespoke fundraising solutions for small to medium sized registered charities and not-for-profit organisations based in the North West of England. Using our unique and innovative approach, combined with our experience of the third sector and our results driven ethos, we aim to provide a high-quality range of professional fundraising services tailored to your individual requirements.
Fundraising Review - A fundraising review (also known as a health check or audit) takes an impartial look at your fundraising activities and past/current accounts and helps to identify new areas of potential for you, as well as any areas of weakness we suggest you need to address (and how best to do so). Find out more.
Fundraising Strategy - Many charities and not-for-profits suffer from the age-old belief that ‘we’ve done it this way before and survived – so let’s keep going the same way’! In the current economic and fundraising climate, this concept of ‘if it isn’t broken don’t fix it’ is no longer either viable or advisable. All charities must have in place a well-considered Fundraising Strategy for the short, medium and long-term if they are to attract the funding required to survive. CFC can help you define a Fundraising Strategy that is unique to your own organisation and aimed at maximising your return. Find out more.
Funding Research - Any Charity or not-for-profit organisation needs to pay attention not only to current funding trends but also to the research required to identify the ‘best’ opportunities for return on their investment. Research is the ‘key’ to success in fundraising. All too often, Grant-Making Trusts are reporting that a high percentage of applications they receive are not eligible under their current funding criteria. CFC can help you steer through the many complicated layers of funding that are often not immediately visible. Find out more.
Sustainability - Fundraising is not just about raising funds on a ‘one-off’ basis – even for Capital appeals. Most charities will require on-going core or revenue support year after year. Find out more.
At CFC we believe in providing our clients with the best return for their financial investment in us. As a small team, this means that whilst we are happy to provide you with excellent advice we will not normally undertake either specific Event or general community fundraising commissions unless previously requested.
However, we have a wide network of "tried and tested" colleagues who may be able to help you if this is what you require.
