Trust Kick Start Programme

At Money Tree Fundraising we know trust fundraising; over six years we have worked with dozens of small charities keen to raise more money in order to expand the life-changing work they do. Their trust income grew when we addressed the key problems we encounter with our clients over and over again:

  • Not knowing how to find the right trust to approach
  • Not knowing how to write compelling proposals
  • Not having the time to write the applications

The Trust Fundraising Kick Start programme delivers:

  • A list of relevant trusts
  • Strong written proposals delivering income[1]
  • Capacity to kick-start your programme
  • New fundraising skills for you and your team

The Trust Kick Start programme has been designed for small charities who are new to trust fundraising. We will guide you through the process the first time. You will learn all about what it takes. Once the programme is complete you can choose to carry on working with our expert or we can move the work back to your team.

Trust Kick Start

Using our tried and tested approach, in partnership with you, one of our expert Trust Fundraising team will take you through the five essential stages of a successful trust fundraising programme:

  1. Review – we assess where you’ve come from, what you’ve done, what has worked (or not) and what you’ve got.
  2. Propose – we package your work into a project with a clear budget, ensuring that you can measure success against pre-set objectives. We ensure that you have all of the supporting documentation, processes and procedures that trusts will need to see.
  3. Research – our prospect researcher finds the trusts who set out to support the work that you do.
  4. Plan – we prioritise the list of trusts and create an action plan for applications.
  5. Apply – we will write the applications, we give you the templates you need to write your own applications in the future and we critique those applications to make sure you are on track.

At the end of the Kick Start programme there will be additional trusts that you can approach, a proposal template and expertly-written applications that you could use as a model for submitting your own applications. We would welcome the opportunity to develop a long term trust application programme with you.
