Alchemy Fundraising Consultancy is the trading name of Amber Fisher MCIOF (Cert), freelance Fundraising Development Consultant.
Amber is a Certified member of the Chartered Institute of Fundraising - she has obtained the Institute's Fundraising Management Certification giving her a thorough, academic knowledge of charities and fundraising. Couple this with 15 years success in the charitable sector, and she has a second-to-none understanding of different organisations, their fundraising methods and the best options for you.
Amber's experience spans all areas of fundraising including trusts and foundations, individual giving (including regular giving, digital fundraising, Direct Marketing and data analysis), legacies, community fundraising, corporate fundraising, major gifts and events; she has organised events for UHNWIs and members of the Royal Family.
Amber is grateful to have worked with a variety of causes ranging from "think tanks" to animal welfare and at a variety of sizes.
But, her real passion is fundraising development and helping charities grow. Alchemy Fundraising Consultancy can support you with the basics such as crafting a case for support and sending your first funding proposal, through to strategic support for major capital projects.
She has worked in fundraising for over a decade but her commitment to the Third Sector is deep-rooted; for thirty years her mother worked for a local charity where Amber regularly volunteered from a young age. She naturally grew-up with additional knowledge about charities and is passionate about the benefits they bring to society. She has worked in fundraising since leaving full time education; it's what she knows and loves.
Alchemy Fundraising Consultancy's services are provided with integrity. Work is undertaken in a professional, transparent and objective manner, in order to achieve the best possible results for you. Amber adheres to the the Fundraising Regulator's Codes of Fundraising Practice and brings this knowledge to her working relationships.
