Case Study

Hasbury Christian Fellowship, Halesowen, West Midlands, B63 4SW

Demonstrating fundraising through practical hands on support to quickly raise funds to bridge a funding gap.

The need

  • An independent church with extensive and good facilities that are well used by a number of church and community groups.

  • The replacement of a 1930's chapel building due to structural failings.

  • Additional funding to urgently address a shortfall to enable construction work to proceed. 

What David Russell Associates provided:

  • A brief funding feasibility & strategy report along with research to develop the case for support to funders.
  • Six training workshops for volunteers from the church involved in fundraising.
  • Drafting of successful application to Veolia Environmental Trust and a business plan.
  • Drafting application letters to selected grant making trusts.
  • The capital appeal raised £66,000 over a period of 6 months enabling the building work to proceed on schedule.  The new church and community centre opened in 2012.

However, due in no small part to the quality and focus of the applications prepared by David, many applications proved successful and a total of just under £67,000 has been received in grants.  This enabled the project to progress.......  the building was completed in November and is now in full use.   Jeremy Howell, Treasurer and Trustee, Hasbury Christian Fellowship
