Rob Parton specialises in all aspects of trusts and major grant fundraising. Working as a professional fundraiser for over eighteen years he has directly raised some £20 million pounds across a variety of causes covering the arts, heritage, community, social welfare, human rights, and disability. Throughout his career he has built good knowledge and working relationships with all of the UK’s major funders.
Rob has led a number of successful fundraising strategies to significantly increase income across a range of charities, holding senior management positions at the Barbican, Shape Arts, Volunteering Matters, and Freedom from Torture among others. While managing and developing fundraising teams, he has also played a lead role in securing numerous significant five, six and seven figures grants.
In March 2019, Rob established his own fundraising consultancy, Amplify which helps non-profit organisations to grow and diversify fundraised income no matter where they are in their fundraising. Through this he offers expert guidance in fundraising strategies including prospect research, project planning, stakeholder and partnership engagement, funding applications, grant management, and evaluation.
With a thoughtful and flexible approach, Rob is passionate about enabling organisations to develop and better articulate their work – prioritising need and emphasising the impact that their work has on society.
