Sample of Consulting Projects

  • Lincolnshire Community Foundation

    Area: Legal Transition and Volunteer Outreach Strategy
    Year: 2020

    Lincolnshire Charity Foundation (LCF) was struggling with improving diversity & inclusion in their organization. At the same time they were struggling to establish a sustainable body of volunteers due to a lack of awareness.

    We researched and recommend a long-term legal transition strategy which has helped increase stakeholder participation within the organization. We also utilised market research to identify effective target areas and strategies to increase volunteer outreach. Competitive analysis was conducted to help highlight best practices and potential pitfalls in their volunteering programmes. Our teams created a social media strategy that was tailored to be easy to implement by a small team. An additional fundraising strategy was recommended to diversify the charity’s income stream away from government grants and wills.

    The whole team at LCF were blown away with the amount of work, care and attention that has gone into completing these projects!

  • Gathimba Edwards Foundation

    Area: Fundraising Strategy
    Year: 2020

    Gathimba Edwards Foundation was struggling with fundraising due to the COVID-19 pandemic reducing the standing orders to the charity. This was an urgent problem as the charity supports the education of Kenyan children who were being disproportionately affected by the pandemic.

    We recommended a fundraising strategy to alleviate short-term funding problems through solutions such as partnering with other charities and companies along with implementing specific campaigns. We also conducted competitor analysis to identify the need for a digital audit. GEF’s website was optimised to focus on sharing the impact of GEF’s work and to highlight opportunities for fundraising. Concurrently, a social media audit and strategy was implemented to attract new supporters. Finally we identified that a significant number of supporters were not actively donating so recommended a strategy to convert them into donating supporters.

    The fact that you each offered different skill-sets was hugely beneficial and I can’t recommend the programme highly enough.
