Overseas Development Fundraising

Securing funds for overseas development is a specialist sector, focussing mainly on individual giving and institutional donors.

Our team includes consultants who have over 15 years experience in this specialised field, who have a detailed knowledge and understanding of overseas development issues and of the relevant funding agencies of international development work

Major Funding Proposals

Assembling a high quality international development proposal requires a solid understanding of the requirements of donor agencies and of the global context of development work.

Our consultants have this knowledge.

We can provide practical support and guidance in preparing winning project proposals for international development work which you can submit to:

  • Institutional Donors (e.g. DfID)
  • The Big Lottery Fund
  • Comic Relief
  • Other charitable Trusts and Foundations

Project proposals can either be prepared for your charity, along with supporting documentation, or we can provide mentoring and support to your staff as they develop and compile applications themselves (which has the added benefit of skill transfer).

Given the typical size of such applications, this is an extremely cost effective way for NGO's working in international development to raise funds for their work.

Individual Giving

As well as supporting major funding bids, we can also provide advice and support in the area of individual giving for overseas development work. This covers the following fields:

  • Donor recruitment
  • Donor development
  • Committed giving schemes
  • Merchandising and sale of gifts
  • Legacy fundraising

Please call us today to see if we can help.
