That’s where we come in.  Put simply, we’ll help you raise more funds so that you can do more good in the world.

Our team members include fundraising consultants from across the UK with a range of fundraising specialisms including:

How we work


The Charity Collective is a new kind of consultancy, bringing exceptional quality fundraising advice and support to the charity sector whilst offering great value for money.

We bring together the best independent fundraising consultants into project teams, giving you the opportunity to work with some of the best consultants in the sector without paying the high margins of larger agencies.

After helping you identify what support you need, we pull together a project team of the fundraising consultants with the most relevant experience for your situation and organisation. Collectively our consultants cover a wide range of causes, charity sizes and income specialisms.

Our team work with you to create practical, sustainable plans that improve your fundraising approach, increase income and make a lasting difference.
