Our services

At Minerva we tailor our services to our clients’ requirements, because we believe that the “one size fits all” philosophy in fundraising is inappropriate for the needs of many smaller charities.

We offer flexible terms of engagement so that smaller charities are not tied into long and costly contracts. We believe that our clients should be offered the ability to amend or terminate contracts as the fundraising situation develops.

The Minerva approach

We realise that small and medium size charities have many different aims, and that their resources, both human and financial, are likely to be less than the major national charities. Because we understand this, our approach is geared to suit the needs and wishes of our clients.

Nothing is too difficult

We are geared to helping charities suffering from the loss of statutory funding/contracts. No consultancy is more flexible in its approach than us.
