What people are saying about us...

Michael Mogan was in charge of fundraising at Coventry Cathedral when I was Sub-Dean. My experience of his raising funds in a wide range of areas was of inventiveness, detailed knowledge and exhaustive hard work. I recommend him very strongly.

The Most Rev Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury

“I worked closely with Michael as he generated commercial interest and support for the UK City of Culture 2021 Bid for Coventry. His networks are impressive as is his energy and determination to meet whatever funding goals he has been given. Michael always spends time understanding what makes the organisation or place tick and what is required, which means the fundraising strategies and approaches to a wide range of potential donors are well constructed and executed. He also has a very well developed sense of humour, which in my experience can be disarming and acts as a key asset to be successful in this kind of work!”

Dr Martin Reeves, Chief Executive, Coventry City Council

"Michael is an incredibly positive, hard working and thoughtful fundraiser. He is creative in his approach to ways to engage alumni and to explore their input, financial and other, to university life. His fundraising work for the Coventry, City of Culture bid was outstanding and a major element of the strength of bid and subsequent win."

Ian Dunn | Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Student Experience) Coventry University

"Michael is a dedicated and experienced fund-raiser with a proven track record, as his past work in Coventry testifies.  My immediate experience of working with Michael is through assistance he has provided for Coventry Diocesan Board of Education to access funding for a specific project which has generated significant interest from potential funders.  We have been grateful for Michael’s enthusiasm, expertise and humour, which have proved invaluable, and I am delighted to commend him."                                                                                                                The Right Reverend Dr Christopher Cocksworth, Bishop of Coventry

"Michael worked with us at Coventry University for several years as we set up and developed the initial phases of our fundraising programme. He was able to identify a range of promising avenues for philanthropic donations, was thorough and professional in all he accomplished, and established a good momentum that we could build on in subsequent stages of our plans.”

Dame Madeleine Julia Atkins, DBE, DL, FAcSS, Former Vice Chancellor of Coventry University 

We started working with Mogan and Mogan in 2013 and have enjoyed a steady stream of income ever since. We can’t recommend Mogan and Mogan highly enough – Michael and Diane have always been extremely attentive and responsive to our needs, taking time to look into our requirements in depth and discuss our plans to tailor our trust fundraising activities accordingly. Diane’s skills in operating an extensive database of grant-making trusts are really impressive, and a huge help to a small charity with a very limited administrative resource..

We are so pleased we sought the services of Mogan and Mogan for a major refurbishment project of our church. The grants received from trusts are beyond our expectations. Diane and Michael identified new funders, those that we ourselves would never have reached, and the results have been extraordinary, giving a ROI of 14:1. We have no hesitation in recommending their services to other organisations.

We introduced Trust fundraising at the point of launch of our £400,000 Breast Cancer Unit Appeal. We chose to outsource this work to Mogan and Mogan - they had the knowledge and experience to identify potential funders and submit strong funding applications. As a small organisation their money back guarantee gave us financial security.   Diane listened and interrogated the detail of the project to identify national and local organisations and match our request to their requirements. As a result we have received donations from a few hundred pounds to tens of thousands of pounds.  In addition, she worked as part of the team, complementing the event and community fundraising operations so the Appeal target was met as quickly as possible.  Diane continues to make a real difference to patients by helping us fund new facilities and equipment.

Tiny Tim’s Children’s Centre recruited Mogan and Mogan to help raise more income from trusts, companies, individuals and charitable events. Michael bonded well with the team and has helped us to secure tens of thousands of pounds of new monies for our work with children with disabilities. Our investment in Mogan and Mogan has proven to be incredibly worthwhile.

Sarah Hemings, Centre Manager, Tiny Tim’s Children’s Centre

I have worked with Michael on a number of fund raising schemes. The common theme is they

have always been innovative, successful and above all fun projects to work on.”

Roger Medwell DL, CEO, NP Aerospace

We approached Mogan and Mogan when KairosWWT was coming to the end of a Big Lottery grant. Diane provided us with an up-to-date list of carefully researched trusts, plus a comprehensive appeal letter.  The mailing accrued unrestricted funding with a return on investment of 12:1 from numerous funders – with amounts ranging from £100 to £7,500. This money allowed us to continue to run our service whilst we prepared and submitted a further bid to the Big Lottery Community Fund, which was successful. We have no hesitation in recommending the services of Mogan and Mogan.

Jane Osmond, Chair, KairosWWT


Michael put in place a fundraising strategy for my world-first polar exploration project. The money I spent on employing Michael was returned thirty-fold and he helped me to build a team of influential and committed Ambassadors. His determination to get results is commendable.

Mark Wood World-first achieving polar explorer

Over a period of 8 years, Michael’s skill in raising funds from a variety of different sources enable us to develop the delivery of our charitable mission and increase our output significantly so that over 10,000 children each year benefit from our work. He has also bonded both office staff and volunteers with his inimitable wit, creating a happy and incredibly productive team.
