I have around 15 years of experience of fundraising and a track record of raising six figure gifts.

My specialism is fundraising for environmental charities, and I have broad experience that includes children, poverty and disability causes.

My experience is across all income streams, with particular strengths in Fundraising Strategy, Trusts and Foundations, Major Donors and Lottery fundraising.

I work as a freelance fundraiser. To request a full copy of my CV and to discuss your fundraising needs, please email:

Often a starting point can be a package of around 10-20 days that includes an assessment of the fundraising situation at your charity, followed by working with you to produce a fundraising strategy and work plan for the next 2-5 years.

Occasionally I also help charities via fundraising agencies, such as Fundraising Consultants Ltd. A quote from one of my recent clients is below:

“Fundraising Consultants helped us to reassess our fundraising activities and created a new fundraising strategy which is achievable and diversifies our income sources. They rewrote our Case for Support and helped us with a number of bids for grant funding. Within just a few months we were seeing the benefit, with new trusts and foundations supporting our work through unrestricted and project funding.”
