Hello, I’m Liz. Welcome to my site.
I have progressed from working for national charities, to setting up Abbot's Consultants, a successful fundraising consultancy based in Herefordshire, where I have worked with smaller charities and Not for Profits, and project managed overseas fundraising projects. With an excellent reputation for developing and securing donations and sponsorship, including running bespoke events, and for positively raising the profile of clients via social media, press releases, radio and TV, I’m passionate about aligning a charity’s ethos with major donors or corporate sponsors with a natural affinity to the same cause. I channel my knowledge into strategies that enhance your charity and, in turn, positively effect fundraising growth. I’d be delighted to work alongside your team to enhance your fundraising capabilities, and that is where an independent fundraising consultant becomes an invaluable resource.
Adept at presenting to Board level to advise and influence strategic decision making, including Corporate Social Responsibility and Major Donor commitments, I have supported organisations across the UK and internationally, with clients in Washington DC, Bermuda and Zambia.
With over 15-years’ of experience in the third sector, I thrive on providing a professional, rewarding and positive experience for all of my clients.
"Liz has demonstrated on numerous occasions incredible professional skills with donor identification and solicitation, program development, program operations, event management, and proposal development. She has also demonstrated her ability to be ambitious but not pushy, organize conferences, be an independent thinker with the skills to accomplish the mission with low risk, and always act with the highest levels of integrity.
In short, she is a total professional!"
Bruce E. Jesson CEO OBXtek Inc.

Creating, organising and running charity events
