Fundraising Focus Programme

How are you planning to get your fundraising back on track?


Fundraising for schools just became more complicated.


Adapting your case for support, anticipating your school community's philanthropic response, getting the timing right, working with a reduced team; the challenges abound

You will be taking critical decisions over the coming months to secure your fundraising success. But many schools are unsure how to get their fundraising back on track amid the challenges and uncertainty.


The Fundraising Focus Programme offers cost-effective, personalised, expert advice to enable your school to protect this critical income stream.

Whether you're currently seeking donations for a hardship fund, continuing with an existing fundraising project or focusing exclusively on engagement, the Fundraising Focus Programme will help you respond strategically to the COVID crisis.

Let’s imagine a strategic response…

Imagine reviewing your school's fundraising one-to-one with an experienced educational fundraiser to determine the actions which will protect your philanthropic income.

Imagine implementing these actions alongside a team of supportive peers who keep you focused, confident and motivated. 

Imagine feeling confident that your plans are based on fundraising best practice as it evolves across the school and charity sector.

Imagine feeling reassured that you're taking the right decisions at the right time and seeing fundraising income rebound.

To make all this a reality join the Fundraising Focus Programme.

Combining two powerful activities

1. One-to-one consulting session

We'll start our work together to overcome your biggest challenges in a one-to-one video call consultation. You'll come away with a clear step-by-step plan tailored for your school and the tools you'll need to put that plan into action.

2. Your Fundraising Focus team

You’ll go through the six month programme with a group of three other school fundraisers. I'll lead six two-hour team video calls and together we'll navigate our way through the COVID-19 crisis. Sharing your goals and being accountable for them to a supportive group of peers will spur you to action, taking steps to get your fundraising back on track.


Expert practical advice tailored to your school on the steps you should take to see your fundraising income rebound or grow through the COVID-19 crisis.

The programme runs over six months, allowing your plans to evolve as we move through the various stages of this crisis.

At the end of the programme you’ll have a plan in place in order to continue to build your fundraising income over time.

When will the programme run?

Why work with me?


I've been in your shoes

I've been an educational fundraiser since 2002 and have successfully led three Development Offices in the UK and Australia. This experience helps me navigate the current uncertainties and guide other educational fundraisers with both expertise and compassion.

A fresh perspective

My love of learning and curiosity about business thinking led me to achieve the top prize on Durham University's MBA programme: Best Overall Academic Achievement.

So I view fundraising from a fresh perspective: I combine the latest thinking on strategy, marketing and culture change with best practice from across the education sector.

I believe work should be a joy

I've found that successful fundraisers needs to be happy in their job: proud to be a leader in their school, curious about what people in their community think and feel, and excited about sharing their enthusiasm with donors.

So I make sure the Fundraising Focus sessions are focused on results but get us there in a relaxed and enjoyable way.
