Your Strategy, Communications
and Fundraising Partners

By Your Side Every Step of the Way

We are here for you. We help raise funds and work with donors to ensure their gifts are used to meet their objectives. We can give your brand personality and visibility in a crowded marketplace, and run campaigns to amplify this. We provide experts to give practical support, and we really getting under the skin of your organisation to directly help you tackle new challenges.

Venture Associates are not typical consultants, who develop a plan and then leave the client to deliver it. We do not believe in silver bullets. We provide advisory support in an agile way – testing and learning as we go – and work with you to deliver bespoke, sustainable and efficient solutions.

What Makes Us Different

At Venture, we have decades of experience as leaders, strategic innovators and income generators in not-for-profits and the media and we want to share our insights, knowledge and networks to help you and your organisation make a positive difference.

We believe the best way is for to do this is for us to work together with you as a unit, bringing in other experts from our network as needed. That is why, when we work for you, we become part of your team. We do not just provide solutions. We work with you to deliver them.


We work on a limited number of Ventures – full advisory and implementations partnerships – at any one time. Ventures are intensive long-term partnerships where we help you frame, reframe or reimagine your cause to make it relevant, fundable and sustainable.

We work with you to identify your objectives and then develop projects and campaign ideas to meet those objectives. This is a partnership; long-term reliable success is the result of testing and implementing new ideas and revisiting old ones with fresh eyes. Crucially we consider our work to be about ideas; we will never encourage you to put all your faith in one solution or concept.
