Specialist services

Our portfolio of services is constantly evolving to meet your needs. As well as our core offering of strategy, fundraising and digital consultancy, we also provide a range of services that can help you gain greater insights into your unique donors, challenges and opportunities and turn them to your advantage.

THINK Intelligence

If you need key insights and knowledge to drive your fundraising activities forward, then Think Intelligence is the ideal resource for you. Our team of specialist researchers are able to provide not only first class research but also practical interpretation of information which can support and stimulate your fundraising development.  We hand pick researchers for every assignment based on your needs and their skills and expertise.  We turn research into practical knowledge that can be implemented.

Our key specialisms lie in the following areas:

Stewardship and Supporter Care

In an increasingly competitive marketplace, retaining and developing existing donors is the key way and most cost effective way to ensure targets are met.  But do you know what your donors really think of your organisation and the way you interact with them? We can help you learn more about your donors through our range of survey and mystery shopping techniques which include the THINK Stewardship Tracker. Click here for more information.

Winning support from Grant making organisations and Corporates

Understanding which statutory funders, trusts and foundations and corporates are likely to fund your organisation and what they want to deliver from their funding; coupled with building strong propositions based on service users’ needs is key to making successful applications.   We can support with all aspects of Grantsmanship and prospecting.

THINK Forums


Why work in isolation when you can share ideas and experiences, solve problems and gain insights with other specialist managers in your area of expertise?

THINK Forums are ongoing, subscription based services that offer regular meetings, conferences and networking opportunities for charity managers in the disciplines of Community Fundraising, Supporter Services, Digital, Philanthropy and Partnerships as well as a dedicated forum for Fundraising Directors.

These unique forums enable you to learn from each other, participate in creative processes and solve challenges. They include access to exclusive research and specialists within the THINK team, as well as expert guest speakers.

Case for support development

As a fundraiser you will know that expressing what an organisation needs in a creative, inspiring and concise way is one of the biggest challenges.

Without a clear and compelling case for support, it’s extremely difficult to attract the leadership giving and fundraising campaign success that are the lifeblood of any charity.

Our team of consultants and experts can work with you – and throughout your organisation – to develop and perfect your case for support at any stage, from the very first step right through to the point of winning investment from donors.

THINK Tanks

Alongside our core team of consultants, we have developed a number of strong partnerships with other specialists in the sector in order to offer practical solutions for not for profit fundraising, communications and marketing programmes.

If you have a communications, campaign, brand, case or creative challenge on the table, we can build a THINK Tank of experienced practitioners who bring support, insight or simply a fresh perspective to what you want to achieve. Plus the hands-on skills to make it happen, if you’d find that useful.
