Our Story

Who we are

My name is David Pettigrew and I am the Managing Director of Nourish nfp.

At Nourish nfp, we are passionate about fundraising and all its elements!

With our growing network team, we are driven to create fundraising outcomes that significantly improve existing programmes – those that have not yet realised their potential – as well as to plan, develop, tailor and implement new programmes that drive substantial organisation AND beneficiary outcomes.

My team’s experience spans multiple countries and multiple disciplines across the industry. As important and often absent in other not-for-profit consultants and programme providers, they bring substantial ‘real world’ – NOT theoretical – experience in fundraising consultation and strategy development.

As team leader, I have held senior fundraising positions in organisations including Fundraising and Communications Director at ChildFund Australia as well as interim Fundraising Director roles at Australia for UNHCR, ActionAid Australia and UNICEF Australia to name a few. This ‘real world’ fundraising experience is what differentiates us from many others.

In addition, I bring experience in the provision of training in critical areas of strategy and fundraising consultation.

I am also delighted to have been engaged as a Key-Note Speaker at events including the International Fundraising Congress (IFC); the Institute of Fundraising (Scotland); the Fundraising Institutes of Australia and New Zealand (FIA & FINZ).

Supporting this and as a personal passion, I conduct intensive fundraising seminars and workshops.

Overall, my team transforms fundraising performance for organisations through a combination of education, proven experience and best practice methodologies.

So how do we go about this?

In essence we provide active and engaging consultancy and fundraising services to the not-for-profit sector.

While this may sound a little dry, our ultimate goal is to add real value to your fundraising process through measurable return on investment (ROI) and life time value (LTV) programs that create long-term revenue outcomes.

How does this happen?

Not-for-profit organisations are as diverse as they complex. We understand this and know every organisation has different needs, agendas and desired outcomes.

There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ advice or programme.

We’ll work in close consultation with you to understand your business operations, people, culture  and values and provide structured and functional fundraising advice and strategies that will significantly improve your fundraising revenue (year-on-year) and deliver mutually agreed results.

The end result is your organisation and beneficiaries enjoy the very best outcomes!
