We're launching in the USA!

We have some exciting news at Oaks Consultancy: we are delighted to finally release the 2021 cohort for our inaugural US Sport for Development Fundraising Accelerator, launched in partnership with Laureus Sport for Good USA!

Last year, our State of the Sector Report revealed that for organisations across the world delivering social change through sport, fundraising remains one of the largest challenges facing the sector and threatening its future. In the US, 57.1% of organisations predicted a reduction in income this year compared to the previous financial year.


Delivered over a three-month period, the accelerator will equip the selected sport for development organisations with the specific skills, structure, and confidence necessary to successfully build and implement an effective fundraising strategy.

The chosen organisations will benefit from one to three hours of group workshops and mentoring each week; all of which are designed to help review their fundraising performance, explore their fundraising potential, and build an effective strategy.


The organisations joining us for the programme this year are:

  • Girls on the Run Chicago

  • South Bronx United

  • Peaceplayers USA

  • Bearings Bike Works

  • Kids in the Game

  • The Sanneh Foundation


We are incredibly excited to begin working alongside these fantastic organisations and empower them to maximise the positive impact they bring to their communities.
