The Trust appointed Caroline just over 10 months ago with a brief with an extremely tight timescale. In that time Caroline and her team have raised over £190k from trusts and foundations towards a large scope heritage capital project. This was from a standing start!
Her work included researching prospective supporters, prioritising approaches, writing personalised cases for support and liaising directly with donors.
We have also benefited from the team’s advice and experience in other governance areas such as Gift Aid and GDPR.
This was a first (very large) step into fundraising for the Trust and we have benefited greatly and learned a great deal; our knowledge of this area has increased hugely as a result. We very much hope that working with Caroline and her team will help us to become more sustainable in the future.
