Trust-fundraising.co.uk has launched an e-coaching service for trust, foundation and statutory fundraisers.

The service, announced following a six-month pilot, aims to help charities “cultivate and improve in-house talent” amongst grantseeking fundraisers.

Trusts and statutory fundraising specialist Sue Crow, Director of Trust-fundraising.co.uk, set up the email-based service to support fundraisers in understanding why certain elements of their application may not be successful with the grant-maker. She said it is more than a simple review and correction service for grant applications.

Crow explained that she “assists the fundraiser to approach the application with a fresh mind, questioning each section of the document, considering the thought processes of the grant-maker and answering their questions before they arise”.

Sport4Life was one of the charities involved in the pilot stage. With support from trust-fundraising.co.uk the charity developed a successful application to The Big Lottery, securing a grant of £289,768.
