Endeavour MAT

Increasing innovation in fundraising for schools

Fundraising strategy has evolved into a retained contract with a procurement element

About the project

Endeavour are a four-school SEND MAT, based in the West Midlands. They approached Altair in 2021 to support with an income generation plan to help them increase the impact they were having on their students and the wider community. We worked with the Executive team and Trustees to explore opportunities for income generation and operational efficiencies to provide additional budget to be reinvested back to their students and families. The plan explored opportunities for fundraising from charitable trusts and foundations and the wider community, generating income from the utilisation of their assets, buildings and resources, and generating savings from centralising contracts and services.

Results

As a result of this process, we have supported the MAT on an ongoing basis for the last 2 years. Our support has included the setting up of a connected charity, running two MAT-wide procurement processes to harness operational efficiencies and savings, and managing their trust and foundation fundraising activity, which alone has generated nearly £100k to date.
