A bespoke corporate fundraising service for your charity.
Top-class consultancy, mentoring and programme delivery.
COVID-19 update Corporate fundraising can be tough at the best of times, but the coronavirus pandemic presents a new set of challenges. Unless your charity directly supports people affected by the crisis, opportunities for new partnerships will be slim. So, we advocate ‘friend-raising’ – strengthening your rapport with existing contacts. If funds are available and your contacts have free time, there’s an incredible resource to be harnessed for mutual benefit.
From reviewing activities to new research, from developing fundraising propositions to delivering strategic partnership programmes; Pebblebeach’s corporate fundraising service gives charities support at every stage.
