Not only do we have to contend with the never ending squeeze on the nation’s collective wallet, but the sophisticated tools and techniques needed to generate income and grow philanthropy seems to increase day-by-day. Throw in new regulation, like GDPR, and you have the perfect storm conspiring to scupper collective efforts before any of us have even left port.
Therefore for those tasked with income generation and philanthropy, be they a CEO or CSR manager, TFA is here to help position and implement successful income generation and philanthropic strategies.
Commercial enterprises need to drive solid income, while those needing to give philanthropically need to be sure that every penny they raise and give is done so effectively. Securing the right insight, capabilities and creativity can be the difference between success and failure.
Our own capabilities therefore run across all levels of business analytics, planning and positioning, right through to delivery training. We combine the acumen and thoroughness of a business consulting firm, with the knowledge, creativity and empathy of commercial and not-for-profit practitioners. We have all held senior positions within corporations and charities alike, so understand what it takes to grow income and develop philanthropy within the current market.
