Oaks Consultancy are delighted to announce that we are inviting applications to become our 2024 Charity of the Year! We are offering pro-bono support to a local charity based in the West Midlands with a maximum annual income of £1,000,000.
Who we are
Oaks is the strategic planning and income generation consultancy for organisations with a social purpose. Our services equip organisations in the sport, education and charity sectors with the resources and confidence to deliver transformative impact and change lives across the world.
Our work in the charity sector enables us to help charities, non-profits and voluntary organisations make amazing things happen. We provide strategic and financial solutions that help organisations make a lasting impact. Our deep understanding of the landscape and the specific challenges facing charity professionals is fundamental to everything we do.
Charity of the Year: what support do we offer?
We can offer our charity partner a range of pro-bono support, including:
Business development planning
Reviewing your fundraising strategy or helping you to write a new one
Income generation activity across different types of fundraising, such as writing bids to trusts & foundations or approaching corporate prospects
Marketing and communications support
Updating your case for support, donor profiles or other stakeholder insight work
We will also hold in-office fundraising activity, with previous examples including sweepstakes, raffles and staff collections.
Hear from Women Acting in Today's Society, our current Charity of the Year:
“Our partnership with Oaks has had a lasting impact on WAITS and the women we support. The funding applications submitted by their team have provided the means to decorate and furnish a new refuge. The gifts we received at Christmas, as well as donations throughout the year, have helped our beneficiaries feel cared for and supported during a difficult time in their lives.
As well as support with fundraising, we have received additional advice with our marketing and communications. Social media videos and articles shared by the Oaks team have enabled WAITS to reach a wider audience and get our story out there."
- Marcia Lewinson, CEO at Women Acting in Today's Society
