Arts & Culture Funding

Art exhibitionDo you want to attract Sponsors and Benefactors to your Arts Organisation? 

We make introductions at Fundraising Events which lead to donations and financial support. 

Why is this service necessary?

Too often inviting potential donors to an event in an attempt to persuade them to contribute produces disappointing results.

Why?

Potential targets are often left standing with the person who invited them, sometimes for the whole Event. This is because most people gravitate towards those they know. Many arts organisations lack the resource, and sometimes the skills required, to introduce potential targets to the key people in the room who can influence the target.

We make sure you avoid problems like this: 

    I was a Patron of an arts organisation but everyone just stood around at the Patrons’ Events, and no-one talked to anyone else.  I asked to be introduced, but I was only introduced to members of staff, which was not really what I wanted, so I stopped being a Patron’.

    Our Track Record

    Prince Charles & Camilla at Watts ArtsRachel Fay has introduced Art Collectors, Supporters and Patrons at Receptions at Goldsmiths Hall (with Dr Penelope Curtis, whilst Director of Tate Britain), Royal Society of Arts (with Baroness Bottomley of Nettleston), Handel House Museum and Stanley Hall Opera. 

    Rachel was responsible for ensuring that guests were properly introduced to The Prince of Wales & The Duchess of Cornwall at the re-opening of Watts Gallery.

    Rachel Fay is expert at seeing that the practical and social needs of new guests are thought about, planned and looked after. She has a sure touch in communicating with people and being on hand to help with introducing them on the day.  This is work that she is well capable of planning and carrying out with sensitivity and charm, in keeping with the atmosphere of the event.
