‘Fundraising is an emotional business – always has been, always will be.’

Wise words from the late George Smith. The process of asking for money is complicated, sensitive and full of lessons learned – good and bad. But like any important and significant relationship that we seek to build, it needs investment, knowledge and commitment in order to flourish.

Help comes in all forms, that much is true. But what you will find with us, is a flexible partnership – a willingness to work in the best way possible for you, not JGA.

Honesty, transparency and collaboration are our watch words. We are fundraising specialists because we chose to be, just like you. So have a gander round our website and if you think you’ve found a kindred spirit, come and get emotional with us – we understand where you’re coming from.


Knowledge, experience and practical support that combine to fire up your fundraising without sending the budget up in flames.


Our Secret Giver Scheme is the voluntary sector’s most extensive mystery shopping and competitor review programme. Members get two comprehensive reports per year supported by robust analysis and insightful recommendations.


Here to help you inspire, motivate and convince your supporters – telling your story in an authentic voice that communicates your message in the most effective way possible.


Short on time? Resources already stretched thin? We can offer an affordable and flexible service for all your print needs, tailored to suit your budget.


A safe and trusted pair of hands, with bags of experience, to guide you through uncertain times and unexpected management situations.


With well-written and researched proposals, coupled with tailored research, we can support your existing trusts programme or help you to set up a new one. We also offer training, mentoring, and guidance on reporting back to trustees.


We can help you ask the right questions in the right way to get the insight you need and want – giving your fundraising the edge to make a difference.


Unique, tailored workshops that will help equip you and your team with the know-how to take your fundraising to the next level.
