Tailored support designed to help you grow
We are a specialist grant fundraising and project evaluation consultancy, based in Yorkshire and supporting charities across the UK. We can help you raise the funds you need - and show the world the difference you make.
We have a highly successful track record - from helping small charities set up and grow their trusts and foundations programmes, to leading multi-million pound grant applications for major national charities. We can help you find funders with interests matching your work and then develop successful grant applications on your behalf. We typically secure 64% of all funds applied for.
Many charities struggle to demonstrate their impact. Using our post-graduate social research expertise, we have developed simple and cost-effective processes to help charities prove their impact. We can help you implement easy to administer evaluation tools and prepare external evaluation reports to motivate your teams, improve your work and support your fundraising.
Successful grant fundraising requires a combination of powerful evidence and impactful communications. We are experts in both. We regularly run training programmes with the Institute of Fundraising in Yorkshire and can tailor training in fundraising and evaluation to meet your needs and build your teams’ skills.

Getting Capidale on board has definitely been the best decision we've made in years! We recently had a Trustees meeting and they agreed too!
Capidale's knowledgeable, supportive, open-minded approach made them a dream to work with; they inspired us to shape a bigger, better project, giving us confidence and passing on valuable skills that will support us for many years to come.
I count my lucky stars that we have Capidale to work alongside us, they have constantly delivered brilliant results, even in a challenging funding climate. I trust their advice implicity and would recommend them very highly indeed.
The team at Capidale has helped the cause of mental health to be transformed and I would thoroughly recommend working with them.
