Fundraising and communications go hand-in-hand. A non-profit organisation has to tell its story confidently and clearly so that funders can assess its eligibility, businesses see the benefits of a supportive relationship, and the public can decide to engage and support. I've built good relationships with philanthropy advisors, funding assessors and philanthropists to understand donor expectations. I've undertaken a raft of professional courses and am an associate member of the Institute of Fundraising. I can help you with writing bids, case-for-support documents and proposals; campaign branding, strategy and materials; events and stewardship.
This TEDTalk discusses how and why charities undervalue marketing where businesses know it is vital – worth watching:
I have very much enjoyed working with Kate – she is one of those unique people who is able to give equal attention both to the big picture (thinking about how the communication will come across to its intended audience) and the fine detail. As a result, working with her on design projects is challenging, rewarding and fun. Her intelligent approach helps you as the client to be confident that you are getting a quality product.
