Claire Nethersole

CN Fundraising Consultancy


I’m the founder of CN Fundraising Consultancy which supports charities to become more effective and raise more money.

With a focus on public fundraising – community fundraising, events, corporate charity partnerships, working with volunteers, and schools fundraising – we can help you to start up from scratch or refresh your current portfolio to increase your income.

Alongside working with you to create new fundraising activities, we can analyse your existing events, income and plans and develop fundraising strategies.

We can also help you identify resources within your organisation and train and mentor fundraising staff.

Based in SW London we work with both local, regional and national organisations across the UK and tailor each project to the client and their needs.

I have over 15 years' experience in public fundraising in the charity sector and have been a consultant since 2015. I have worked with large, medium, small and tiny charities giving me a breadth of experience in organisations with widely varying budgets and resources.

I have a proven track record of increasing income from campaigns and events, and engaging the community to fundraise, and have supported several organisations at the start of their fundraising journeys.

I am passionate about building relationships with donors and creating activities to engage them with fundraising for a cause. I also enjoy managing and mentoring staff and helping people to reach their full potential.

I am a member of the Consultants Special Interest Group Committee for the Chartered Institute of Fundraising and an admin on the Fundraising freelancers and consultants Facebook group. I am a trustee of a mental health charity giving me board experience.
