Trust fundraising research and bid writing


Abbey Solutions has over 19 years experience in Trust fundraising research and support with preparing bids to charitable foundations. Over the years we have helped charities raise millions from this important source of revenue and project funding from children’s charities to medical research and ex-service charities.

One of our largest successful applications in the last year (2017) was for £260,000. It was the largest donation the Trust had ever made to a UK organisation.

We believe we have one of the most up to date trust/foundation databases there is and we are continually updating our records. We can work with your team or if Trust fundraising is new to your organisation, become your trust fundraising department.

What you will always get from us is highly detailed research and exceptionally written proposals that tell the story, detail the impact and have the financials to back it up.

Whether you are a large established organisation that wishes to build on the success you already have with trust fundraising or a smaller charity that wants to access local funds, we will be able to assist you in building a robust and sustainable income stream.


Our services include:

  • Trust/Foundation health check
  • Developing a structured plan with trust pipeline
  • Develop/write bids
  • Trust fundraising training
  • Recruit experienced trust fundraisers


We now have a dedicated trust fundraising site which covers everything from bid writing to bespoke trust fundraising training. Please visit Trustfundraisinguk
