What our clients say about us
“A5cend helps us keep on top of the changing funding landscape, which is vital for a small charity like us. A5cend is also able to share learning from other charities and community organisations, which is really valuable.”
“A5cend not only understands the complex requirements of funders like the Big Lottery, but also understood us and what we were trying to achieve. They helped review our previous application and revise it from the ground up, ensuring we demonstrated how our newly developed monitoring and evaluation strategy fitted into our working practices. A big thank you to them, without whose support I doubt we would not be where we are today.”
“We’ve worked with several fundraisers and by far A5cend asks the most of us. At times they can be quite demanding, but the upshot of that is that we end up with these really strong applications.”
“I’ve learnt that you have to be realistic and can’t really pin all your hopes on one funder. It is competitive. You have to be prepared to go back year after year and improve yourself as an organisation and improve your bids.”
“I’ve learnt that there’s a real art to bid writing – even if you’re quite good at writing bids, understanding how each different funder works and getting the nuances right for them is a real skill. It’s been really useful to work alongside an organisation like A5cend, which really understands those nuances.”
“What was great about working with A5cend was that they immediately understood the value of what we were trying to do and married it with the right funder.”
