I help non-profits build great relationships with DONORS 



Hi, I'm Sam hardy

Over the past 8+ years, I’ve helped a wide variety of non-profits both big and small to build long term relationships with funders AND I’ve helped funders find the right non-profits to work with.


This depth of experience is almost unheard of in the charity and non profit sector and allows me to solve funding problems from both perspectives.


Throughout my career I’ve been lucky enough to do things like; advising Tony Blair’s government in the UK, sitting on the fundraising boards of the Australia Institute and the Heart Foundation, as well as working with organisations like WWF Australia, the University of QLD, The Wilderness Society and a number of prominent philanthropists.


But that said, I’m just ‘Dr Sam’ (as my friends call me), a mother of two and passionate advocate for the impact that non-profits and funders can make on the world...with the right advice.

Because I've built my career in charity and not-for-profit funding working with both non-profits and funders it means I'm uniquely placed to help you achieve your goals - whatever they are. It doesn't matter if you're a charitable organisation that wants to develop a major gift strategy or a funder looking to choose the right non-profit to work with, I can help you.
