Are you a registered charity located in Devon, Cornwall, Somerset or Dorset?

Do you have an annual income of between

£50,000 and £250,000?

Would you like to benefit from support from

Swift Fundraising Limited?



The Swift Initiative is a bespoke package consisting of an initial consultation and two days of fundraising support provided by Swift Fundraising Limited. As a result of a generous donation from an anonymous donor, a limited number of these packages, with a monetary value equivalent to £3,000, will be available for a small number of charities in the South West, and, if you answered yes to all of the questions above (and you are not a current or past client of Swift Fundraising Limited), your charity is eligible to apply for a chance to secure one of the free fundraising support packages.


How does The Swift Initiative work?

  • To apply you will need to download and complete an application form from the link below, and return the form by email to Swift Fundraising Limited

  • Successful applicants will be selected in consultation with the donor and the work will be delivered by Swift Fundraising Limited at a time to be agreed with the charity

  • Within three months of completion of the work, all recipients of a fundraising support package will be required to provide feedback on its delivery and outcomes, in order to monitor impact and to ensure that the initiative best meets the needs of small to medium sized charities in the South West


    Potential support packages may include, for example:

  • Prospect research

  • Fundraising training

  • Construction of a compelling case for support

  • Drafting grant applications

  • Business planning



  • Application forms to be completed and returned to Swift Fundraising Limited by 30th November 2018
  • All applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application by 31st December 2018
  • The first round of support packages will be agreed and delivered by 31st March 2019
