Thoughts from our clients on working with our team

ChildFund New Zealand

Giving Architects was really great to work with. Together with Marie’s skills and Clive's knowledge of the sector, we received a really useful and practical audit of our digital channels and communications. I really appreciate their approach, service, and way of working!

Auckland Grammar School

"The thing I am proudest of in this campaign is that we managed to achieve our goal of raising $16.65 million. When we set out there was a huge target. The expertise of Giving Architects was quite crucial to achieving a lot of the Success."  

Spectrum Foundation

The team provided flexible advice and support in a rapidly shifting and changing environment, working in partnership with us to build and shape the programme together. Always thinking from a donor perspective, their insight and experience has been key to the progress we have made so far.  

The Selwyn Foundation

The team of Giving Architects became the Selwyn team, and it was like having a fundraising team there, working together with us. They provided us with good structures and processes with weekly meetings and monthly reports to then keep us on track. Often with consultants, it’s very academic and it means something when they are there, but when they’re gone, you are left with; now what? But Giving Architects gave The Selwyn Foundation that route map on how best to progress.  

Hawke's Bay Community Fitness Centre Trust

Giving Architects has much experience in the successful capital raising for a wide range of projects. The team can be completely relied on to research and develop a campaign that will succeed, prepare and deliver timely reports and provide wise counsel and advice along the way. They make a 101%commitment to the project, including making changes to the fundraising plan as changing circumstances dictate. Giving Architects steps up in demanding circumstances and will not let you down. I can thoroughly recommend Giving Architects. 

St Paul's Collegiate School

We could never have achieved our ambitious fundraising target without the expertise of Giving Architects. Their combined skills and experience provided leadership and guidance to help us deliver a very successful capital fundraising campaign. 

Blind Foundation

The Giving Architects approach is strategic, very thorough and disciplined yet they are able to always inject the right amount of creativity and lateral thinking into the mix. They are immensely resilient, strategically agile, committed and never stop until the job is done. It always feels like you have a true partner on board when you have the opportunity to work with them.

Mercy Ships New Zealand

Giving Architects took the time to hear our hearts, to get to know our team, to become familiar with our history, and our dreams. Giving Architects worked with us on creating a plan to move from where we were, to where we wanted to beSeveral months later we are thrilled to have accomplished our initial goal and we are now onto our next significant fundraising goal. 

Well Foundation

Giving Architect’s knowledge of fundraising strategy, structure and execution is outstanding. Their networks and knowledge of the market were exceptional and I would thoroughly recommend their services.

They are always incredibly well informed about best practice fundraising, international and domestic trends in philanthropy and the emergence of impact investment in the for-purpose sector.
