In doing so it helps charities assess the level of risk, and shows where the best opportunities for expansion lie.For example it asks whether an organisation is ready to expand its fundraising and communications, how sustainable existing income lines are, why is now the time to invest, and what risk assessment has been carried out.The M-CAT uses a matrix to assess and score a charity’s position and capacity, and results are presented through radar graphs which indicate clearly what action needs to be taken to expand fundraising successfully.Rob Wells, Senior Partner at Kinetic said: “This service has been developed in response to fundraisers constantly asking me how they could tell if their carefully crafted communications and fundraising plans would actually work”.The M-CAT has already been successfully trialled with small and medium-sized charities and NGOs in UK as well as internationally.The service is initially available on a consultancy basis, but Kinetic hopes to produce a self-assessment version later this year.www.thekineticpartnership.org 19 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
