Personal coaching on the fundraising issues you're facing

Don't take a one size fits all approach to your fundraising: learn how to tailor your strategy to your school and tackle the challenges you've identified.

Do you feel like some fundraising advice falls flat, and lacks relevance for your institution?  

Every school is unique, so it can be hard to apply 'best-practice' advice or insight on new trends to your organisation. Your individual history, current development practices, and the wider community in which your schools reside all need to be considered carefully before strategic guidance should be shared.  

James Underhill of Underhill Associates is here to listen. With over nearly 30 years of fundraising  experience and tenure at Tonbridge School under his belt, he's been helping development departments review activity and shape their donor engagement practices since 2013. By making development a more prominent part of school life, James specialises in giving your development strategy leadership and momentum, while providing a task-oriented focus for maximum productivity. 

James is a big believer in establishing strong processes in your development office, and following them! An advocate for favouring long-term strategy over short-term gains, he is passionate about moving development departments forward by sharing straightforward advice, and has an impressive track record in doing so. 

If you think you could benefit from a 121 telephone consultation with James, he's ready to listen and hear your challenges from your point of view. Whether you believe your departmental processes could be improved, or you'd just like to talk about how the work of the development and alumni staff could be better aligned, he's all ears.  

Following an exploratory phone call to determine where the biggest pain points and opportunities lie for your school, you will receive a follow up fundraising pack featuring a bespoke action plan from James, and relevant resources based on your conversation. 

Click here to sign up for your free consultation and access a fundraising pack tailored for your school's requirements. Fill in the form to tell us what your development office needs help with, and we'll do the rest.
