Grow your giving - philanthropy

Philanthropic Offer

Having worked with a wide range of organisations over the years I am in a position to bring a wealth of charity experience to support your philanthropic giving to become more effective, helping you to make a real difference.


  

As a consultant, with my background and expertise in working in charities and other not for profits, managing donor relationships as well as in grant making, I can work with foundations, companies, grant makers, individuals and families to realise your social philanthropy investment ambitions by:

· Developing your giving strategies

· Identifying and assessing organisations that would fit your objectives

· Designing and delivering your grant making processes

· Monitoring the impact of your giving


  

I can work directly with you or with your existing team of advisers.

For larger and more complex grant making, for example a very large number of grants across the UK I have the connections to work with a Consultancy Company that has the software to manage 100s of applications.

Capacity Building

Why not add further value to your philanthropy. With a wide range of experience supporting and delivering strategic and business plans along with change management I can support your funded organisations development. I can facilitate their Board, Teams and others in developing the plans, ensuring they are realistic, timely, challenging yet achievable. This could involve:

  • A review of how they are doing
  • A review of their mission and vision
  • Consultations with beneficiaries, stakeholders, staff and volunteers, Trustees
  • Financial and income generation reviews
  • Facilitating away days to scope the way forward, visioning the future
  • Develop with them the strategic plans and operational plans for the next few years
  • Development of impact measures, key performance indicators and milestones
  • Trouble shooting – impartial reviews and advice 

I have recently qualified as a consultant and reviewer in the use of Digi-Board™. This is an online tool that can de-mystify governance for charity boards so everyone can contribute to this important area regardless of their governance knowledge or experience. 

  

Digi-Board™ has been developed to explore the principles that contribute to good governance 

I can support the capacity building elements of your funding by using this online tool to produce reports and findings using both quantitative and qualitative data to enable the Board and Senior Leaders to identify areas that need improvement, as well as those that are excellent! From this we can work on an action plan for improvement. For those charities that can truly demonstrate good governance this can only increase the public’s trust in them leading to high income and enhance their sustainability.
