There were so many Eureka! moments with Craig, one of them led me directly to a £100,000 donation.

Learn How To Raise Big Donations
This programme will give you the tools and knowledge you need to get funding for your charity or project. It will point you in the right direction, show you how to take your first steps into fundraising, and guide all the ones that follow.
If you need to get funding for your charity or project, but don't know where to start, if you're feeling lost, reluctant, overwhelmed, or frustrated:
"Let me share everything I know about fundraising and give you everything you need to do it yourself"
Fundraising can look like a mystical art, but it isn't, it's a simple craft that anyone can learn and get good at - all it takes is someone to point you in the right direction (and practice).
So, let me show you how to get your first big "YES!" from a donor.
Don't worry, we'll take this one step at a time!
I won't overwhelm you!
You've got more than enough on your plate without adding an intensive fundraising course to your to-do list and your pile of things-to-feel-guilty-about.
If you're investing your time to learn how to fundraise, you want to do it properly, right?
This programme is spread over 50 weeks because fundraising takes time to learn. And the only way to learn fundraising, is to DO it.
The four parts of the programme are spaced to give you the time you need to put what you've learned into action.
The programme exercises are designed to be practical and will move your fundraising forwards: doing the exercises IS doing fundraising!
And I'll guide you step-by-step.
This programme is built and paced to give you the best chance of real-life success.

Craig is a rare breed of fundraising guide, one who only feels successful if he has transformed your fundraising income and sustainability. He is not a '5 %er'.
Executive Director, Malaria No More UK
Motivating! Informative! Succinct! This brilliant course spoke to me as a “reluctant” fundraiser who prefers to do all parts of the Foundation’s work over this!
Chair, Tribal Wisdom Foundation
How will you feel when you get your first donations?
Imagine the moment when your first big donor says “Yes!” Imagine how that is going to feel. Imagine all of your doubts dropping away and knowing that you can do this (and even enjoy it!)
I still remember the first time a donor said “Yes!” to me. It took a few hours to sink in. I leapt around the room. It was a donation of $4,000, but at that moment it felt like $4 million.
I forgot all my past failures. I forgot all of the hard work I’d put in, all of my mistakes - because that donation made my project possible.
Your first "Yes!" and the donations you need are out there too.

I've seen the difference that this course makes and I'm confident that I can guide you to fundraising success. So, I'm going to make this easy for you, remove all of your worries and your risk. Right now.
14-Day Money "Fit" Guarantee
Your fundraising hours are too precious to spend on an approach or tutor that doesn't fit. So, if you complete the first chapter of the online course (Chapter Zero - Step into Fundraising) within 14 days and it's not working for you then I'll refund your programme fee.
365 Day Money "Results" Guarantee
I'm confident that this course will transform your fundraising results. I also believe you shouldn't spend money on any course that doesn't deliver. So, if you complete the full Fundraising Radicals Programme and haven't seen your fundraising results transformed within one year (of the programme end) - I'll refund your programme fee.

Here are some of the 200+ organisations who have worked with Craig and the Fundraising Radicals
Thank you for taking us a long way in a very short space of time. Your expertise and patience helped us refresh our fundraising, you made us see what might be possible, and we now have £1.5 million in donations heading our way. Thank you.
Professor Dame Jane Dacre, DBE
Professor of Medical Education at UCL & former President of the Royal College of Physicians
Today is a great day for Northumberland. You set us in the right direction and built our fundraising capacity. These made raising the £15 million for The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre possible. Thank you.
CEO Northumberland National Park Authority
Before I met Craig I could not understand why none of these wealthy people and companies would fund my project. He showed me how fundraising really works, and AREF has gone from raising nothing to more than £2 million per year. Thank you!
Professor Sir Tumani Corrah, KBE
Director of the Africa Research Excellence Fund, Honorary Fellow LSHTM,
Craig, your programme challenged and inspired me and energised our trustees - we have gone from raising zero to $8 million within one year. Our dream for Myanmar's first Liberal Arts & Sciences University is becoming reality.
Dr Kyaw Moe Tun
Director, Parami University (Myanmar)
Thank you for your support of the Royal Geographical Society. There are dozens of funded expeditions and research projects that would never have been funded without your guidance and training. Yours is a quiet but vital contribution to the expedition community.
Sir Ranulph Fiennes, OBE
The world's greatest explorer (and fundraising phenomenon)
I don't think I realised at the time how much I was learning from you, but I know I could not have landed this £11 million donation without your guidance and the understanding you brought about how fundraising really works.
Professor Eleanor Robson
Head of History, University College London
When I first set out to fundraise, 26 years ago, I was really, really, really, bad at it. I tried and failed to raise just a few thousand pounds. Twice!
I was frustrated and really hard on myself. But looking back, I had no clue how to do this thing called fundraising. I had no one to guide me, to point me in the right direction. I had no one to help shortcut my way to fundraising success. I had to make my own mistakes and waste lots of time learning for myself what works and what doesn’t.
Thankfully, since then, I’ve turned it around.
I've now been doing this fundraising thing for 26 years. I've worked in more than 100 countries with donors, fundraisers, and nonprofits (of all types, shapes and sizes). My training, guidance, and tools have helped more than 1,000 people like you (from first-time fundraisers to professional fundraisers, CEOs and trustees) to raise more than $500 million (and still counting).
I’m now a “world-class, award-winning, expert in global fundraising” but I will never, ever forgot how lost and confused I felt as a first-time fundraiser. I know that anyone can learn to fundraise and I hope that you think “if this, introverted, former mathematician, former accountant, can do it, maybe I can too”.
Now, I can’t do the fundraising for you. That’s on you. But if you come committed, I will give you everything else you need to get your project or charity funded. I’ll share the knowledge and tools you need to do fundraising. I’ll bring you clarity and build your confidence and together, step-by-step, we’ll get give you the very best chance of getting your project or charity funded.

Why I built this programme...
There are four key reasons why I invested hundreds of hours of my time into developing this programme:
- I’ve never forgotten how daunting it is to take those first steps into fundraising.
- I wanted to create something that is simple, clear and structured, a true step-by-step path to getting big donations.
- I wanted to offer an affordable alternative to people who cannot afford consultancy fees so I could empower them to make a difference in the world through their own projects.
- I wanted to create something to guide the younger (clueless) version of me, give him a shortcut so that he wouldn’t have to waste all of that time, make all of those mistakes.
So I founded the Fundraising Radicals. This programme is about sharing the fundraising knowledge and tools that are used every day by leading fundraising consultants (like me) and the world’s best fundraising professionals.
It’s about making great fundraising more affordable and accessible for everyone.
For me this is personal... the world needs more people like YOU! People with ideas that will make this world better, and the commitment to make them happen.
