The Answer to Your Question

Often our finances are in poor health and just like going to the doctors we put off a check up. We let things run hoping they will improve in time, but this is never the case. Often small issues when left compound each other and lead to major problems. Finance and by inference funding problems are a very good case in point.

Our knowledge based approach will take a long hard look at your finances and funding position. Bespoke and tailored to suit your charity, needs and budget, a fundraising review is an audit of the main factors impacting on your fundraising and results.  We can carry out: 

an internal audit of

  • your charitable and financials goals, funding needs and fundraising resources

  • the skills, experience and performance of your fundraising team(s)

  • your income stream mix, fundraising activity and results

  • the relative return on your investment in various forms of fundraising

  • your forward aims, ambitions and options for fundraising

  • any fundraising strategy/planning you have undertaken 

and an external audit of the environment in which you are fundraising:

  • the ‘Economic’ Environment – Political, Economic, Social, Technological, Legal and Environmental factors that impact your fundraising

  • the Competitive Environment – mapping your position in the funding marketplace with your ‘competitors’, and comparing their fundraising

  • the ‘Market’ Environment – key characteristics and trends in the sector, donors, channels etc.

Some of the range of Solutions we provide to clients are listed however we are aware that often the problems we address are unique and seek to meet each client at their point of need and provide a bespoke knowledge based solution.



For Vision, a Voice and Visual Impact


“Solutions” to LEXXER means listening to you and finding out what the problem really is, not simply what it appears to be right now. Often underlying fault-lines, systemic failings or institutionalized legacy issues are really the problem, and often anything that does not address them really only papers over the real problem.   Our solutions are innovative and effective based on knowledge and analogical reasoning. We often see refer to the Ps in problems :

  • People: addressed using training , motivation and empowerment;
  • Pecuniary: where finance can be developed;
  • Place: often location, and the best use of space can resolve matters; 
  • Process: by applying best practice and fresh thinking;
  • Project: to either develop or relaunch a failing project can help;
  • Product: we offer solutions in terms of production and promotion.
