Fundraising is my passion. It enables dreams to be fulfilled, community needs to be met and the impossible to be achieved.
When it comes to fundraising, I make it happen for you. My goal is to help you develop your donor relationships while raising your income and lowering your costs.
I abide by the ethics and standards of the Fundraising Institute of Australia..
I have been fundraising since 1966 and a Professional Fundraiser since 1995. I am a Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE), was on the Queensland FIA Committee for four years (and NSW for four years) and hold a Postgraduate Certificate of Management with a Fundraising Major from QUT in Brisbane. I have been an official tutor for the Fundraising Institute of Australia's Certificate in Fundraising and while on the Queensland Commitee I organised the Mentoring program for fundraisers new to the profession.
Am currently working on a number of strategic plans for both large and small charities and am happy to review any charity to help improve results. My speciality is getting not-for-profits with limited resources on the road to building their fundraising, while raising their profile. I have considerable experience in events as well as e-fundraising (fundraising on the web). I also provide a fundraising staff hiring service which includes writing the ad, vetting the applications, interviewing the applicants and checking references.
Contact me for expert advice on which software you need to maximise your fundraising income. I have been specialising in vertical market (specialty) software for the past 30 years, and have a specialist knowledge of fundraising software and databases, and how they should be set up and managed. Connect your database to the web and you will be able to fundraise to a wider audience while saving money and staff time.
Not sure if your web site is performing at its peak? Contact me for an assessment of your web site and what can be improved to maximise its functionality.
For over 40 years I have been designing newsletters and writing copy and was the recipient of an international Toastmasters award in 1993. With a background in typesetting and design, I can assess your existing logo, letterhead, stationery, newsletter and forms as part of your overall strategic fundraising plan.
If your organisation is a membership one, Angel Solutions can manage it for you. We will assess your needs and send out membership renewals, maintain your database of members and basically run your administration, without you having to pay a full time staff member.
As a published author, I can critique your copy writing for your fundraising newsletters, press releases or brochures. Examples of published articles.
