Charity Times "Fundraising Consultancy of the Year 2000"

The Midas Service
Fundraising Consultancy of the Year Midas partners and associates pride themselves on being some of the most experienced fundraisers in the sector.
We do hands-on fundraising, strategic development, big gift appeals, capital appeals, trust and statutory research and applications, including the lottery. In fact all areas of fundraising!. There is no one service - each is carefully tailored to the needs of a particular charity. Often what is required changes, for example, as an appeal develops new skills may be required and new techniques tested.

The following are the main patterns of the Midas service which are available Worldwide:

Single Projects
These could be for a capital sum or for a particular project.

Crisis Management/Mentoring
Fundraisers often say they need someone to help them sort out problems and develop new ideas. A financial crisis or staff vacancy requires a 'hands on' direction of an appeal before the position can be stabilised. Midas mentors give one-to-one support when, for example, a general fundraiser moves into a more specialist role, or help is needed with a special project, opportunity or crisis. Mentoring speeds up learning and introduces new fundraising scenarios; it helps retain staff and enriches their work.

Revenue Fundraising
Some charities with a voluntary income requirement of 500,000 a year or more find that the most effective way of handling their appeals is to contract out the whole operation. Often this involves considerable savings in staff and time management and allows the use of skills the charity could not otherwise afford.

450,000 each year - Kerland Foundation

100,000 each year Intercare

Consultancy / Research
Midas is a founder member of the Association of Fundraising Consultants which actively promotes the highest possible standards and one partner was a member of the group that worked together to found the Institute of Fundraising. Many charities need an expert independent assessment before an appeal is launched or a formal review of their ongoing in-house appeals.
