I work with fundraisers from charities and not for profit organisations of all sizes, assisting them in developing a sustainable income generation strategy that will allow them to reduce reliance on grants. I am passionate about supporting anyone who fundraises, through one to one and group coaching. Many fundraisers have little or no support and can feel isolated, stressed and at times overwhelmed by their roles, A coach can share their burden and help them find a way to overcome the many challenges they face. When I finish my contract, the organisation will have a strategy they can implement and the fundraisers will have the skills and confidence to do it.

Coaching gives a return worth 30 times the investment!

Life as a sole fundraiser can be very rewarding and also very challenging, having someone who has several years experience of this type of fundraising and who has an external view point, can make a difference to the decisions and approach to some of those challenges.

I have worked with Rachel for 12 months now, she joined Spark! as their first Fundraising Manager, although not a fundraiser, her skills were highly transferable and her fundraising instincts are exceptional.

I have acted as a coach/mentor over the last 12 months, our discussions involve all the aspects of fundraising from events, to corporates, major donors, grants and case for support. As a part time fundraiser Rachel has many different things vying for her time and attention, having one day a quarter when she can focus on the bigger picture, budget, strategy and objectives for the next 3 months is very useful.

Return on Investment is in excess of 1:30

Chief Executive Coaching

Julia Worthington has over 20 years’ experience of working in the third sector and she is now using those skills to help charity Chief Executives to explore private sector fundraising as a means of diversifying their income.
