Charity Fundraising

Creating the Time to Give

Successful fundraising, like any business, requires accurate marketing to your target audience.

As an event organiser and a fundraising expert for over 20 years, Caroline Cary has embraced the world of charities and not-for-profit organizations with open arms. Together with the help of an amazing team of people who have worked closely with her over the years, she has helped raised millions for charities and fundraising projects. Understanding the brief and working dynamically with relevant organisations, corporates and private donors are key to the team’s success.

Our experience is wide ranging: anything from small events, such as lunches, book signings and dinners to large events including fairs, balls, food festivals, concerts and fashion shows. Our success has always come from the critical aspects of planning, effective marketing, good logistics and knowing our clients’ goals.

Our objective is to help charities and fundraisers with new and exciting ideas in this ever-changing world where charitable giving is so prevalent and so challenging. Let’s work together now and embrace this world of giving which can really make the difference that we all care about.

After an initial consultation, we will design and manage your event in an economical way, whilst increasing your Charitable Fund and providing you with the right platform to deliver a winning combination: a wonderful event and a highly successful fundraiser.

  • Hi Caroline I wanted to email you straight away this morning to say what a fantastic evening you created last night! You should be very proud of yourself and thank you for your kind mention I really did do very little except point you towards some people who might help. Sorry I did not see you before I left. What fun our guests had! Fantastic amount of money raised! Let's have a catch-up coffee at some point? Take care kind regards Vicky xx
  • Dear Caroline Thank you so much for organising a thoroughly enjoyable Curry Night last night.  The room looked fantastic, the food was delicious and the entertainment was excellent.  Charity do’s aren’t always fun but last night was! Much love Isobel xxx
  • Dear Caroline, A triumph.  You arranged and organised an outstanding event which everyone clearly enjoyed. The food was delicious and having Richard entertain us was a master stroke. How does he do it?? William F worked extremely hard as he cajoled people to 'dig deep' during the auction and raised what I consider to be a huge amount of money. Penny and I are only to aware of how much time, effort and sheer hard work go into planning and arranging such a large event. You and the team you gathered around you did brilliantly and that comes from your leadership and drive.  Well done. Much love Derek and Penny X

  • If Caroline agrees to mastermind an event or tackle a fundraising activity the organisation she works for or with will be extremely fortunate. She will bring to bear her impressive intelligence, foresight and attention to detail to achieve success. Problems will be overcome by working 24 hours a day if necessary, having given her complete loyalty to the project. Charm and her ability to make people feel special are just two of her many outstanding qualities. To work with her or indeed for her is a real pleasure.

  • I have known Caroline Cary for over 10 years. She worked in my team for four of them in fundraising generally and organising a charity fair specifically. She has a flair for organisation, an acute eye for detail and a way with people that encourages them to do their best for her and the organisation. Fair, and firm when necessary, she is experienced and talented and has been hugely successful as an organiser and fundraiser. Moreover, the events have raised the charity's profile along the way and have proved her ability in public relations as well. I can recommend her most strongly.

  • I have attended a number of events organised by Caroline over the past 15 years. I have worked with her on the ABF Soldiers charity committee for The Lord Mayors Curry lunch and together we ran and organised a charity fair . Caroline is passionate about what she does and is a total perfectionist. She exudes enthusiasm and energy and has an extraordinary attention to detail, nothing is too much trouble and she will go out of her way to ensure that her clients are happy. Caroline is firm and fair and has a real talent for 'putting on' the best parties but is always looking at the bottom line. She will be very fair in her quotation .. always looking for the best deals but the end result is always superb. I highly recommend CLC events to organise a special occasion.

  • Caroline is someone who cares about both the details and the outcome. When Caroline plans your event whether intimate or huge, she develops the ambiance, the style and all the time has her eye on your goal so that you achieve the result you are seeking.

  • I have attended a number of events organised by Caroline and worked on a event committee run by her. She radiates an incredible enthusiasm and energy to ensure that events run flawlessly with an extraordinary attention to every small detail, so that both the organiser and attendees can be sure of a perfect end result. Whenever problems arise, she remains calm and deals with the issue promptly and effectively. Venue managers and contractors immediately appreciate her wide experience and knowledge and make sure they work well together and deliver everything as agreed. Highly recommended!
