A complete trusts fundraising service.
Expert consultancy and practical delivery to maximise your income.
March 2020 update
In these difficult times, fundraising from trusts should be a core part of every charity’s income portfolio. The grant-giving trusts community has indicated their willingness to support more charities in need – but they’ll only do so for projects that clearly define the need – and where the application is written and delivered in the right way.
Pebblebeach’s comprehensive trusts fundraising service provides charities with everything they need to maximise success. From prospect research, through project planning and budgeting, to final delivery of professional applications, we’ll ensure you have the best chance of securing every application you send out.

What our friends say...
“We’re now two years into our new structure with new established income streams. This wouldn’t have been possible without Pebblebeach. We cannot recommend the team enough to undertake this type of work for other charities; the wealth of knowledge and experience you receive from them is so valuable in shaping the future of your fundraising.”
