Fundraising

 

I know how time-consuming it is to produce a brilliant show or to run a

charitable company with few resources and a small staff.  Trying to find

funding sources,review criteria and complete the application forms can take

up valuable time but,without that vital income, brilliant ideas and companies

can't progress. I can help by providing a fundraising service that reviews the

needs of the project, finds suitable grants to apply for and completes

the application process.

 

'Lynne was invaluable in completing my Arts Council application.

I could not have gotten the funding without her. She took time to

understand the project and myself.  She helped with the logistics of Arts Council's Grantium and also helped me understand how to sell my project in a way that would make sense to any audience and really cared about it too. She was integral in getting my project off the ground.'

As a fundraiser, I've successfully raised £311,900 from a variety of Trusts and Foundations including the Foyle Foundation, John Lyon's Charity, Royal Victoria Hall, Unity Theatre Trust and Didymus Charity. I have also been successful raising funds from Arts Council England through National Lottery Project Grants.  If you identify as disabled or neuordivergent, including having dyslexia, then Arts Council can pay me directly to work with you in completing a written application.

Lynne provided the skills, empathy and insight demonstrating the value of her knowledge and capabilities. I can highly recommend the services of Lynne to provide all round value, attention to detail and quality.'

My fee's vary depending on what's needed.  My daily rate is £200 for writing an application. If I'm reviewing an  application that's already been compiled or if you want to talk to me about fundraising options, my fee is £20 per hour. Feel free to contact me on lmcconway@fastmail.com, and we can have a chat!
