For 15 years we have provided fundraising and communications consultancy to over 100 heritage, arts and cultural organisations.
We help our clients with audits and feasibility studies, fundraising and communications strategies, training and mentoring. Whether you've fundraised before or are starting from scratch, we can show you how to make the best use of your resources.
We are fundraising practitioners. Our team of experts has years of 'frontline' experience in a wide range of not-for-profit organisations. We can support individual fundraising activities by preparing your case for support, researching prospects, applying for grants, drawing up cultivation plans for major gifts, drafting and negotiating sponsorship arrangements and corporate partnerships, and implementing a communications strategy that supports your fundraising objectives. Or, we can plan and manage your entire campaign.
If you don't have the experience or the time to make the most of available grants, outsourcing this vital area of fundraising activity can be practical and cost effective. Our team has extensive experience and an excellent track record of success in securing funds from private trusts and foundations and statutory sources such as the Arts Council and Heritage Lottery Fund.

Donation boxes can be a source of significant income and also reinforce the charitable nature of a museum. Development Partners has written the first in a series of ‘Quick Guides’ published by the Association of Independent Museums on the subject of Donation Boxes.
