In their words...

It has been great working with you and thank you so much for all your advice and ideas and especially for the strategy – I have learnt a lot from you and it’s been very interesting to start to get my head around fundraising. You have demystified it, laid the path out before us and given us confidence that it’s possible. Julia Weston, Chief Executive, The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust

Thanks for all the wise advice so far.  Mark Adams, CEO, Community Integrated Care

Just a quick note to say a huge thank you for the work you done on our Fundraising Strategy.  It does seem that we have some really good things we can now start to share with the wider organisation which is amazing!  We have quite exciting times ahead I think.  Karen Sheridan, Chief Operating Officer, Community Integrated Care

Pippa provided guidance during the set-up of a new development committee and an associated campaign. The scope was broad, ranging from advice on developing a philanthropic ethos in the community through to the policies and design of campaign material needed. Although this was achieved largely  through distance communication, interspersed with some short, focused meetings, she quickly grasped the wider ethos of the School and the needs of this committee (as well as their trust). Pippa’s advice was clear and practical, which coupled with her highly articulate and confident delivery, ensured our “Thrive’ campaign gained traction quickly.  We are hugely grateful and recommend her most strongly. Bex Tear, Headmistress, Badminton School.

In 2014, Inyathelo worked with Pippa Carte for the Advancement Academy for non-profit organisations and higher education institutions, and in March 2017 we reconnected with Pippa to conduct a Strategy and Fundraising workshop for non-profit organisations. Pippa provided practical and applicable content and templates that organisations will be able to refer to beyond the session. We’ve enjoyed our engagements with Pippa, and have appreciated her sharing her expertise and sectoral insights. Lizel Shepherd, Inyathelo Programme Co-ordinator: Advancement Training, May 17

Great energy from Pippa, well prepared and engaging. // So many tips; great experience and stories shared.  // This was a great workshop, the practical tools were really helpful. // It was a great refresher and igniter of ideas.  Four participants from Inyathelo 2-day Workshop, April 17

Once again, thank you very much for the professional and informative workshop which you have presented at Inyathelo. I really enjoyed it, and learned a lot! Martie van der Linde, Manager Development and Alumni Relations, Stellenbosch University, South Africa

The Royal Hospital Chelsea, home of the iconic Army veteran community, the Chelsea Pensioners, was delighted to work with Pippa Carte on a new strategy for revenue fundraising. In addition, Pippa provided excellent discrete strategies for individual giving, trusts and foundations and legacy giving. We were so pleased with the quality of the work produced, and Pippa has gone above and beyond the brief in terms of providing additional advice and guidance where necessary, such as in relation to marketing materials and our re-brand work. We would thoroughly recommend Pippa to any organisation and hope to work with her again in future.  Kate Ainley-Marr, Fundraising Manager, The Royal Hospital Chelsea

Pippa was asked to provide some strategic level recommendations on how to improve the fundraising approach of our small charity. She quickly grasped the scale and scope of the Trust and its current fundraising model and following a short focused engagement with a group of our Trustees was able to provide us with clear implementable recommendations which we are now taking forward.  Ian Tibbitt Rear Admiral (Retd), Deputy Chairman of Trustees, Fly Navy Heritage Trust

Pippa has been a great help during our preparation for approaching major donors. She guided us through the difficult task of creating an exciting value proposition and has given us confidence in engaging with people who can make a real difference to ocean exploration and conservation.  James Wallace, Managing Director, Nekton Foundation

Your input was great; sensible, realistic and informed based as it is on your wide experience and it will stand us in good stead. Liz Harrison, Chair of Riding for the Disabled, Cranleigh

We are so grateful for all the work that you have done for us this year.  I feel that we are a million miles ahead fo where we were when we first met.  CEO, Military Charity

I have worked with Pippa on numerous projects. Her ability to grasp any aspect of a fundraise, or capital appeal, is impressive. She challenges, where required, to really extract the core issues that will help an organisation make the best of any programme. She is impressive in presenting complex issues to stakeholders and understands the politics required to ensure long term relationships. Sir Tim Boughton

Pippa is an extremely engaging speaker who captivates her audience with her insights and dynamic presentation style. Her knowledge of major gifts and tools for fundraising is evident through the multitude of experiences she shared at the Advancement Academy. Khairoonisa Foflonker, Student Affairs, Stellenbosch University, South Africa

Pippa is an exceptional strategic fundraiser, very analytical, highly organised and unflappable. Tobin Aldrich, Global Director of Marketing and Fundraising, Sightsavers

I have worked with Pippa, both at WWF-UK and at the Children’s Museum, for some seven years.  Pippa has demonstrated that she is an outstanding fundraiser – both strategically, and working with volunteers and donors alike.  I could not recommend Pippa more highly to any organisation seeking to raise third party funds – whether the advice sought is at Board Level, or in implementing plans. David Gregson, Independent Chairman and Non- Executive Director

Since she joined our board Pippa has made an excellent contribution not only in terms of her mentoring our fundraising director, but also around the board table. She is diligent, always well prepared and is clearly committed. David Maloney, Chair of Make A Wish UK

I would not hesitate to recommend Pippa as a presenter.  Pippa, first and foremost is a very bright and intelligent person.  She is observant and intuitive.  Her strength is that she is other centered and goal directed.  She was a joy to work with and she brought intelligence and value to every step along the way.  She presented well and responded well to questions.  She demonstrated confidence and certainty in the subject manner. Tony Myers – Principal and Senior Associate, Myers & Associates, Canada

Pippa’s expert insights and recommendations inspired our fundraisers and helped them develop their fundraising more professionally and strategically. Eduard Marcek, Chair Slovak Fundraising Centre
