Venture Trust

Interim Trust Fundraising


The Brief:

Venture Trust is a personal development charity supporting people aged 16 years and over who are struggling with complex circumstances to overcome barriers to realise their potential. Reductions in team capacity over the short-term meant they wouldn’t be able to make as many applications as usual. A key income stream, accounting for a quarter of all income, they were keen to maintain the volume of trust and foundation applications

Action Taken:

Deanna supported our trusts and foundations work for a specific programme: pulling together a case for support, preparing several high value applications and creating a template small trust application.

Difference Made:

Without Money Tree Fundraising, we would not have been able to make as many applications in the period as we were able to do.


Too early to say! Applications pending.

“We really enjoyed working with Deanna. She is thorough, engaging, asks helpful and challenging questions where need be, and draws from her wealth of experience in the area of trusts and foundations and the third sector generally. Deanna is both extremely personable and professional, and engaged well with the wider team too. The time spent working with her has felt like a successful collaboration. We extended our contract with Money Tree Fundraising for an additional three months to continue to benefit from Deanna’s support and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her to others.”
