UK Testimonials

The British Academy Development Team worked with Bill King and his colleagues from the International Fundraising Consultancy on an audit of fundraising activity at the Academy.  The progress which took about three months was constructive and positive.  It is always helpful to have a fresh view point and the IFC provided exactly that with new insight into new approaches and confirmation of the value of the current focus of fundraising.  Their analysis has helped to inform future fundraising planning and to support further investment in the Development Team.

Clients – IFC

I have worked closely with the IFC for several years. They were instrumental in producing our first Fundraising Strategy, which led to the securing of significant funding for our new heritage centre. “IFC are supporting us again now with securing corporate sponsorships, applications to trusts and reaching high net worth individuals. The focus of their involvement is in meeting our current fundraising targets and long-term sustainability. We have gone back to IFC not only because we trust them but because they understand our organisation and have become part of the team.
