Mackie Fisher

Mackie Fisher - Church Funding Specialist

Local churches are amazing. My goal is help you and your church find the money you need to run your church activities and reach your community with good news and social change.

CAP’s Grants and Trusts team is behind you as a church. So far, we have equipped our local church partners to raise over £2.8 million. As you grow and serve your community, we want to help you.

As well as my role of Church Funding Specialist, I’m also a Project Information Officer at CAP. This means I have experience applying for funding, researching funding opportunities, and generally doing everything involved in the process of getting money to fund great community projects. I can apply all this expertise as I work with you and your church.

I’m looking forward to working with you. Click the ‘book a slot’ button to arrange a chat.

Abi Nelson

Abi Nelson - Scotland Funding Manager

If your church is in Scotland and you would like to explore your fundraising options and potential, I would love to help!

Having started my work in this field in Community Fundraising for a small charity, I have first hand experience of what it's like to build a philanthropy strategy from the ground up that utilises your most precious resource - your community.

From congregational giving to community events to trusts and grants, I would love to work with you and your church to reach your fundraising goals.

Alongside helping churches in Scotland with their fundraising, my role as Scotland Funding Manager involves exploring funding opportunities to strengthen and sustain the work of CAP Scotland, and building relationships with CAP supporters and those in the third sector.

Please use the 'Book a slot' button below to arrange a meeting. I look forward to connecting with you soon.
