Benchmarking – national and international

Our extensive network of contacts in the sector enable us to put together groups of charities to meet all of your benchmarking needs.  Whatever aspects of performance, structure or resourcing you want to compare yourself to; we can define the right questions to ask and the organisations from whom you have the most to learn.  We encourage you to consider direct competitors; comparator organisations – similarly sized and working in a different causal sector and benchmark organisations – those who are seen to be ‘best in class’ within the sector.  Our analysis will enable you to apply any lessons learnt quickly and effectively.

Environmental Trends analysis

Anticipating, understanding and reacting to trends within the external environment are critical to ensuring your organisation doesn’t get left behind.  Trends analysis can be undertaken on a macro or micro level; providing analysis of general conditions for fundraising as well as for specific stream activity.  This part of our work provides vital information for setting and delivering your fundraising strategy.

We produce a stand alone in-depth Environmental Analysis report, that covers what we see happening across the charity sector.

The report includes key statistics, key trends and implications to the sector.  It also covers our own market observations, across all major disciplines including: Individual Giving, Legacies, Challenge Events, Special Events, Community, Major Donors, Trusts and Foundations, Corporate, Supporter Care and New Product Development.

The report is a handy digest that will provide invaluable food for thought as you plan for the year ahead.

The Environmental Analysis report is priced at £2,950 and if you would like to find out more please contact Samantha Dixon on
