Hire me as a fundraiser 

Trying to raise funding for you or your project is hard, I know. It takes valuable time just to find potential funders and review their criteria before you’ve even considered the application forms.

My experience

As a freelance fundraiser and in my roles at the Royal Shakespeare Company and previously Kiln Theatre in London, I’ve raised almost £360,000 from a variety of Trusts and Foundations including:


Foyle Foundation

Garfield Weston Foundation

Awards for All

John Lyon's Charity

Royal Victoria Hall Foundation 

Roddick Foundation


Arts Council England

I have also been successful in raising funds from Arts Council England through National Lottery Project Grants.  If you identify as disabled or neuordivergent, including having dyslexia, then Arts Council can pay me directly to work with you in completing a written application.


How can I help?

I provide a service that reviews your project, find suitable grants to apply for and, through ongoing discussions with you, I then complete your applications and budgets (where appropriate).

My fee is very competitive and varies depending on what's needed with a daily and hourly rate available. Feel free to contact me at for more details.


 'Lynne was invaluable in completing my Arts Council application.  I could not have gotten the funding without her. She took time to  understand the project and myself.  She helped with the logistics of Arts Council's Grantium and also helped me understand how to sell my project in a way that would make sense to any audience and really cared about it too. She was integral in getting my project off the ground.'

Lynne provided the skills, empathy and insight demonstrating the value of her knowledge and capabilities. I can highly recommend the services of Lynne to provide all round value, attention to detail and quality.'

'IJAD (dance company) trustees...highly recommend Lynne as a fundraiser.'
