I'm currently working as Fundraising Manager for both Iris Theatre and The Bread & Roses Theatre and am also available as a freelance fundraiser.
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 to 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 £244,000 from a variety of Trusts and Foundations including the Foyle Foundation, John Lyon's Charity and Didymus Charity. I have also been successful raising funds from Arts Council England through National Lottery Project Grants and Developing Your Creative Practice. 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.'
