Coventry UK City of Culture Trust

We have raised £4.5M in less than three years with a team of just two fundraisers.

Wait, let me revisit that, we have raised £4.5M with a team of hundreds:

Our Chairman, David Burbidge CBE DL, is not a paid member of the team but always leads by example helping us to recruit other Founding Presidents who have also committed £100K.

Our Bid Development Sponsors, who gave £50K each in cash also introduced others, hosted events, delivered our schools programme and created an avatar portal for donors at other levels.

Of our 120 backers in the 2021 Club (£10K), more than a dozen won gold badges (ok they are painted yellow) for introducing two other members to the Club: They did this by inviting friends to events we hosted and helping with the follow up: They are all honorary members of the team!
