The Midas PartnershipThe Midas Partnership is a firm of fundraisers managed by Michael Westerman. We provide hands on fundraising, consultancy, mentoring and training. We have a number of clients ranging from the very small to some of the top 50 charities worldwide.
The Midas Partnership fills a niche in the existing network of services in that it is an organisation which is prepared to be accountable because we not only provide consultancy, but put the advice into action by becoming directly involved in raising funds.

Midas is usually contacted as a result of a recommendation by one of our past or current clients. We are chosen because we get things done, and do so without publicity for the partnership,you will not find us advertising for clients!
At an initial meeting we are delighted to discuss your requirements. If we make a presentation we reserve the right to make a small charge or ask for a generous donation to one of our existing clients.
We agree to help a charity because we feel we have something to contribute. It is fulfilling, for example, to meet the key person for whose post you have run an appeal or see an essential new building opened. In short, we do the work, and we enjoy it because we are directly involved in doing it.
