Elizabeth Spring Third Sector Strategic Development
Elizabeth Spring                  Third Sector Strategic Development

Development Cosultant. In 2012 I completed an interesting role as interim Charity Director with the Kensington & Chelsea Foundation. Several charities I'd supported there, asked me to continue to advise them on business plans, constitutions, strategic development and fundraising.This led to me setting up a freelance consultancy for Third Sector organisations.

    Key Skills:

  • Raising five and six figure grants from trusts and foundations including Tudor, Sobell, Rank, Esmee Fairbairn, Cripplegate, Richard Cloudesley and City Bridge.
  • Supporting and managing colleagues with strategic development using continuous consultation, review and planning cycles
  • Writing clear, accurate reports and consultation documents based on data analysis, to create libraries of evidence for fundraising and marketing.
  • Consultation and stakeholder involvement
  • Overseeing and planning budgets as part of the management cycle
  • 100% success with the Pre-Qualification Questionnaires that open doors to statutory bids and tenders
