Fundraising Mentoring

Funding for All mentors small charities, voluntary organisations, community groups and social enterprises from across Kent and Medway. 

Since opening in 2012, our mentoring programme has supported nearly 700 Kent and Medway voluntary sector organisations by developing their skills in:

  • bid writing;
  • income generation;
  • fundraising;
  • business support;
  • marketing and communications;
  • and legacy programmes.

Our objective is to inspire and empower community organisations to build their fundraising capacity and ensure sustainability. At the heart of everything we do, our core promise is expressed as: 

“We offer the skills and advice to help your organisation raise the funds it needs.”

By giving fundraising support to charities, voluntary organisations, community groups and social enterprises, we have been directly responsible for bringing more than £7 million into the county since our launch. 

Our mentors are experienced, industry experts and cover a vast range of specialisms from arts and heritage to youth and older people. Once matched with an organisation, your mentor will work directly with you to achieve your objective. So whether you need to brush up your bid writing skills, refresh your fundraising strategy or diversify your income, we can help.

Ollie Briggs, Managing Director, Arts Education Exchange said “Funding for All has been instrumental in enabling us to set up Arts Education Exchange. We have been lucky enough to have its support from the early conception of an idea to a fully operational organisation. Funding for All’s personal approach and wealth of knowledge have been inspiring!”
