“It was a great pleasure working with Abbey Solutions. John and his colleague Haidee-Laure supported Amref Health Africa to review our trust and foundation fundraising, including an in-depth assessment of our processes, recommendations on resourcing and forecasting for the future. They also developed  a new pipeline focusing on high-value prospects.  I hope to work with them again in the future! “ Katie Greywood Head of Fundraising 2019


Where we work – Truly International

We work throughout Africa, Asia, Middle East, the EU and Eastern Europe. We have in-country  consultants in each region.


The organizations we work with

At Abbey Solutions we firmly believe in supporting organizations that are committed to providing those most at risk or disadvantaged, the ability to help them climb out of poverty and escape persecution where ever they are in the world.

We want to see change happen. Abbey Solutions is keen to work with organizations that have a strong track record of developing projects that have significant and lasting impact and organizations that are totally transparent, with clear and detailed accounts. Sustainability is key to developing projects that can be duplicated across local areas, the entire country and region.

We are successful at fundraising because we only take on assignments we believe in and can see the vision the NGO has to make change happen.


Size really doesn’t matter – Impact and transparency is everything

For us it is all about impact and transparency. We support small local NGOs that are lifting people out of poverty everyday, changing the fortunes of families that in turn, impacts positively on the whole community. We also work with large international NGOs that are developing programmes that help inform and develop government strategies on poverty relief or improving education systems. Whether $100,000 dollars is required or $10 million dollars,  we focus on what that will achieve; is it good value for money and is it a programme of national and even international significance. We always look at programme activity through the eyes of a donor.

What makes us different

  • We do not take on every assignment that comes our way. We focus on quality impact driven NGOs.
  • We want to raise funds for projects that can make a significant difference to people’s lives.
  • We only raise money for NGOs that have a high level of transparency
  • We only work for NGOs where we have the same passion and beliefs you have for your work


What’s the Process?

Before we begin a fundraising assignment we carry out research into your organization so we fully understand your operations, history, finances and future goals. We then tailor our service accordingly.


Before we begin working with Country based NGOs we require the following information:

a copy of the NGO statutes/By Laws
a copy of the instrument of legal recognition
a recent two-year report of activities
a brief report of the projects your NGO would like to implement
previous fundraising activity
your business plan or strategic plan

All information sent to Abbey Solutions is in confidence.


Other fundraising related services

We can also help develop fundraising plans, provide training and recruit fundraising staff.
