Trust Fundraiser

For those charities with the personnel already in place to carry out their own fundraising our mentoring
programme provides a cost effective alternative benefitting from our expertise, experience and oversight.

Training And Mentoring

Let us help train, develop, and inspire your team with our ‘Trust Fundraiser’ training and mentoring programme.

We always strive to help in any way we can. Through our years of experience, we know that running, working, and fundraising for a charity can sometimes be a lonely and frustrating place. Therefore, to help charities develop their own in-house skills we have created ‘Trust Fundraiser’, our training and mentoring programme.

By utilising over 25 years of expertise as a consultancy, Trust Fundraiser is designed to give your staff the skills, resources, and support needed for trust fundraising. You will receive expert advice and one-to-one attention as you seek out, write, and prepare applications for funding. This enables you, or one of your team, to learn from us and take a bit of the Felton Fundraising success back to your organisation.

Over a duration of six months, we will coach and support you to look in the right places for funders, build attractive projects for funding and create clear and concise information to make your fundraising appealing.

What Our Clients Say…

“We have been working with Felton Fundraising for over 17 years & cannot thank Richard & the team enough for the amazing benefits they have brought to the organisation. Over the years we have been able to secure funding for resources, equipment & staffing to ensure our service for families affected by disability are of the quality and standard they deserve. Felton goes the ‘extra mile’ to understand our requirements. I have no hesitation in recommending Felton to any charity.”

The Hamlet Charity

“Felton Fundraising is so much more than just a fundraising consultancy. The team not only provide a top-quality service but they totally embrace the heart, core values and mission of the organisations they serve. We value Felton Fundraising as people who believe in what we do and who we are. They are trustworthy in holding our vision and presenting it to those who can help us carry it forward with likeminded hearts. They are always there for us. After 10 years of working together we can speak with experience and say we wouldn’t go anywhere else for fundraising expertise and advice.”

Connects & Co.

Felton Fundraising has been an outstandingly important partner in our work from the very beginning. Providing expert consultancy and friendly support through starting out, highs, lows, and periods of expansion. They are big enough to know what is going on at the macro scale across the charity sector but also understand how to apply their knowledge to the bespoke needs of a relatively small local charity such as ours.”
