Corporate Partnerships Mastery Programme

Increase your Corporate Partnership income

Claire Ellis Waghorn from Demelza Hospice Care for Children found the programme so helpful that by Day Four she had secured five chances to partner and won every single one, each worth more than £10,000 for organisation.

The NSPCC has used the strategies from this programme to win four partnerships worth over a million pounds in the last five years.

When one charity used the Mastery pitching techniques, the retailer was so keen they cancelled the planned staff vote process altogether and awarded the charity the £250,000 partnership that same day.

The Corporate Partnerships Mastery Programme is for anyone who delivers or manages corporate fundraising and who wants to improve their results now that the pandemic has had such an impact on the corporate sector. This programme gives you the strategies and confidence to take intelligent action.

Sound familiar?

Building sustained success in corporate fundraising is extremely difficult, especially now. Here are some pitfalls which make this discipline particularly difficult:

  • Though many companies are now more open to build strategic partnerships since the pandemic, talking to the right ones is not straightforward.
  • Colleagues criticise your approach and distract you from working strategically (e.g. they urge you to apply for famous Charity of the Year partnerships).
  • You have little or no time to spend proactively seeking out the more strategic, long-term partnerships.
  • You struggle to actually win partnerships, even though you’re getting ‘nice’ feedback about your pitches.
  • You’re the only person in your charity responsible for raising corporate income – and your colleagues just don’t understand what it takes to win big partnerships.
  • And all of the above makes it hard to raise as much money as you’re being asked to, which is stressful and demoralising.
