Our Experience

As trusted advisors to the for-purpose sector, we have worked with many great organisations to achieve significant fundraising outcomes. The scope and scale of the needs being met varies tremendously. We apply our skills, knowledge and expertise to provide effective solutions that meet your needs.

Giving Architects brings a unique understanding and deep experience with proven expertise in for-purpose sector fundraising and marketing. We specialise in growing revenue so that our clients can fulfill their purpose and deliver greater impact to people and planet. This often involves raising millions of dollars or breakthrough results for transformational projects. 

These projects often present a challenge to donors and funders who question where Government responsibilities end, and their responsibilities begin.  Carefully crafted donor-centric messaging is essential to demonstrate the compelling and urgent needs that donors can partner in, standing alongside credible organisations and being part of the transformational change. The appeals associated with these needs require careful, strategic planning and the execution of sequential interconnected tasks that optimise philanthropic outcomes.
