Accelerate your fundraising and increase your income by evidencing your impact.
If funding applications are too frequently being rejected, the Impact Accelerator for Fundraising programme will get you the impact data that funders are asking for and present it in a way that will put you firmly on the 'yes' pile.
You know you need to prove to funders the difference your charity makes, but why does it seem so hard?
Does any of this resonate with you?
- Funding applications are being rejected because you can't provide sufficient evidence that your project is worth investing in.
- You are great at telling stories of lives changed, but unable to back them up with solid outcomes data.
- You are struggling to persuade colleagues to spend time capturing the impact data that you need.
You're not alone!
Too many charities are losing out on funding and opportunities to change lives because they can't measure and demonstrate the difference they make in an engaging way.
How much funding are you missing out on?
Introducing the Impact Accelerator for Fundraising.
A programme of online learning and implementation to help you capture robust impact data to inform and inspire funders of the difference made by your charity.
It will enable you to:
- Increase the success rate of funding applications by defining the intended outcomes and impact of your project and how you will measure this.
- Build stronger relationships with funders and donors by creating an inspiring impact report and other communications that showcase the difference your charity makes.
- Raise more money by engaging with funders and donors more effectively.
- Increase your impact by analysing data and identifying what works.
Why does impact matter?
The stories and data about what you do, why and the difference this makes are key to inspiring funders and achieving a sustained impact.
Don't just take our word for it!
- 88% of funders think that impact measurement makes charities more effective.
- 87% said that evidence of impact plays at least some part in their decision to give a grant.
“Much of the data that is generated by charities is deemed to be largely irrelevant to donors.”
(Third Sector Research Centre, 2020)
Doors to registration close on 1st October 2020.

Is this programme right for your organisation?
The Impact Accelerator for Fundraising is for you if:
- You lack credible outcomes data and instead rely on numbers of people reached, quotes and stories.
- You want to measure the outcomes achieved through front-line projects and services but don’t know where to start.
- You are a small or medium-sized charity or social enterprise that supports people, and your fundraising success is suffering because you cannot provide the outcomes and impact data that your funders require.
Why is this programme different?
Maybe you’ve been on courses before and the notes stayed on your desk, with nothing materialising from your learning? (It’s ok, we’ve all done it!)
Impact Accelerator for Fundraising will be different! We will focus on implementation and I will support you every step of the way.

About me and why I’m piloting this programme
I have first-hand experience of the thrills and terrors of charity leadership; my career started as a fundraiser and I was CEO of two charities and turned both around from near-insolvency to a sustained surplus.
I became an independent consultant in 2010 and over the last decade I have worked with dozens of organisations to evaluate their services and measure their impact. From household name charities such as FareShare and MS Society to small projects such as Love4Life and Culture Shift.
I speak to so many frustrated fundraisers who want to measure their impact but aren’t sure where to start, or they are wasting time measuring the wrong things.
There’s a limit to the number of organisations I can support through my one-to-one consultancy. Several charities have asked for a more cost-effective way of working with me, so I am opening up access to my methods through this pilot Impact Accelerator for Fundraising programme.
