How we work

Advantage’s goal is to develop tailored strategies for each of our clients and then work hand in hand with them as a partner to achieve success. We believe any non-profit can meet their mission with proper planning, focus and guidance.

Fundraising and public relations are a special area of expertise at Advantage. We recognise that non-profits cannot be successful without effective funding so we concentrate on that area of work. However, as well, good fundraising practice cannot exist in an organisation without sound structures, policies and processes so we encourage organisations to consider those aspects when planning their funding programme.

Our team values collaboration, partnership and team work. Your goals become our goals. Your passion becomes our passion.   We work with you as a consultant, partner and team member and our expertise, experience and knowledge is evident through the work we do with, and for, our clients every day.

We will put 100 per cent effort into your organisation.

Some of our clients

 
 
“Advantage were contracted by Asthma Auckland to provide a donor development plan for Asthma and to assist us to carry out the initial activities. Our organisation had an out of date database and very little contact with donors. First of all Jenny and Di worked to review and renew our database and start a small programme of acquiring new donors.

Jenny, Di and the team have an excellent understanding of donor development especially for smaller organisation and are realistic about what can be achieved.”

“Bucklands Beach Associated Football Club (BBAFC) has now used Advantage for three years. In that time we have had huge success with our funding applications and couldn’t be more happy with the service they have given us.

They have contributed a lot of time to the club and their friendly but business-like manner has made them a pleasure to deal with. BBAFC is better off for the funding they have secured us and we look forward to dealing with them in the future.”
