What our clients say

“Deaf Action has been working with Glassey Fundraising & Event Management since 2011(before which they worked with Tayside Deaf Association beginning in 2003 before our two organisations merged).  We have always been impressed by their ability to take on a new brief, research fundraising options and deliver the funding to help Deaf Action continue to provide vital specialist services that provide help and support for deaf and hard of hearing people across Scotland.” — Will Searle, Marketing Officer, Deaf Action

“Our fundraiser is excellent.  She fully understands our services and helps us to achieve financial sustainability for the charity.  The funding applications that Alice produces are extremely professional and informative.  As Alice uses a timeline we are always prompted well ahead of when reviews and reports are due, to provide the necessary statistical information from our database, case studies and other general information which is required to be included in the reports.  All charities should have a gem like Alice working for them. ” — Doreen Paterson, Chief Executive Officer, Geeza Break

“Like many small voluntary organisations, we struggled to find the time to plan, write, submit and report on all the grants we were going after while also researching potential new funders. Ian, Alice and Samantha have proved an invaluable investment for the project from maintaining current grant activities to researching potential new funding opportunities and because of that, we have received several significant grants to help us in our work with Young People. Working with Ian really allows me to focus on developing our services that we deliver to the young people safe in the knowledge that funding for programmes will be forthcoming giving the project much needed financial security.” – Tracey Boyle, Project Manager, Gorbals Youth Cafe

“My name is Mary Miller and I’m Chairperson of Baillieston Community Care, a charity based in the East End of Glasgow. As with most charities we constantly struggle to find the funds to meet our needs, especially in this economic climate. Although previous fundraising had some small success, when our Operations Manager suggested we employ a professional fundraiser he had dealt with through another charity he is involved with, I was very reluctant. I was worried we would be paying the Fundraiser money we didn’t have,thereby compounding our problems. We agreed to meet Alice & Ian and straight away we liked them. We decided to take them on for a trial period. I am so glad we did as we have raised more money this year than ever before. Alice has been great in sourcing various new grants and the difference that has made to us in amazing. She has also prepared all the reports that funders ask for which has freed up the manager’s time to concentrate on new business. Having Alice on board has gone a long way to making this our most successful year yet and we look forward to continue working with her in the future. I would not hesitate to recommend her services.” — Mary Miller, Chairperson, Baillieston Community Care Ltd (snapshot of some of their help below)

Before Funding
After Funding

 “Stirling Family Support Service (SFSS) has received a high quality personal and professional service from Glassey Fundraising & Event Management. They are easy to talk to and were quick to understand the concept of our organisation and service delivery programmes. They ensure our meetings are focussed and kept to a minimum with prompt follow through by email and phone. SFSS has welcomed the expertise and experience coupled with good practical advise. Ian, Alice and Sam have become a big part of our organisation over the past few years and feel more like family. They have provided excellent value for money and have helped us secure much needed funding from several trusts and foundations. We continue to use their service and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them to others. Indeed, we have!” — Janice Beaton, Service Manager, Stirling Family Support Service

“Girlguiding Ayrshire North was so lucky to find Glassey Fundraising to help us with fundraising for a New Activity Centre. Since they came on board, the project has gone from strength to strength, so much so that we will soon be moving on to the next building phase of our project. I could not recommend Glassey Fundraising highly enough.” – Betty Wilson, Project Manager, Girlguiding Ayrshire North
