At a time when the NHS is under great financial pressure, Compton is at the forefront of testing and delivering fundraising plans for projects and programmes to provide additional funding for our hospitals, healthcare institutions and medical research charities.
We worked with the Addenbrookes Charitable Trust to plan its 2020 Vision Campaign - the flagship capital fundraising programme for the Cambridge University Hospitals. The initial focus was to secure £7 million for the “Centre for the Newborn” at the Rosie Hospital. A Compton team, led by our Senior Consultants, Marc Stowell and Judy Tucker, provided the fundraising strategy, direction, campaign management and background research to support the Rosie Campaign Board. Major grants were secured from trusts and local charities as well as six and seven-figure individual gifts. As ever, the success of the Rosie campaign was built on a genuine partnership between committed volunteer leadership and dedicated fundraising professionals assigned from the Compton team.
When the Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals NHS Trust needed to raise £15 million for a new children's hospital, Compton was selected as the preferred consultancy partner. The Campaign, led by volunteer leaders exceeded £13.5 million and attracted an array of six and seven figure gifts. A community appeal, led by the Oxford Mail, went on to achieve the balance of the funds needed.
