With 40 years in fundraising, which includes more than 30 years specialising in legacies, there isn’t much about legacy fundraising that Richard doesn’t know. However, he never presumes he is right! Every time he spends time with his clients and their stakeholders he discovers unique attitudes to each client. Richard knows when he will retire: it is when he thinks he knows everything and becomes arrogant!
“Every client and every region of the UK (and the world) and every charity has donors, volunteers (and where applicable service users), who feel something special and unique about their charity. All we do is try and find out what that is, so that we focus on what they want to encourage them to leave a gift in their Will” He is passionate about sharing his expertise and creativity with nonprofits, about challenging their thinking and helping generate substantial income for future years.
