At O'Kennedy Consulting we will create a proposal and devise a plan tailored to your specific needs, in order to maximise your fundraising potential and ensure the long term success and sustainability of your organisation.


Fees are time-based and work is executed according to pre-agreed time lines. The fee is based on the scope of the services to be provided, not the amount of the campaign or fundraising goal. O’Kennedy Consulting does not charge a percentage or commission based fee-this policy follows the Code of Conduct of EU Consult, of which we are members but also best practice in general.
