“We engaged Paddy to undertake a thorough audit and review of our fundraising activities and to advise us on the methodology and management of fundraising for the next three years to support our work with disabled children and young people.. Subsequently to this we engaged him further to support us in a networking exercise. For the initial assignment, Paddy undertook a thorough fundraising review and advised us on how to increase our fundraising. For three months he met with key trustees, fundraising and other staff, researched past, present and future funding sources, studied internal documents such as job descriptions, strategy papers, fundraising reports to the trustees etc. Then he wrote and presented his report to the trustees at their meeting. Following this meeting, we used Paddy to undertake an extensive ‘networking exercise’ among supporters of White Lodge Centre to unearth contacts into potential major donors and trustees of relevant trusts.
“His work was delivered on time and he regularly reported on his progress. He has the expertise and resources to deliver a high quality service and we were very happy with his work, so much so that we would certainly recommend him to organisations looking for fundraising advice and support.”
