Whenever a client asks me to recommend a F2F agency, then SMILE Fundraising are always one of the first companies I tell people to speak to. I’ve seen first hand their commitment to training and delivering a strong supporter experience. Their retention rates are, in my experience with numerous charities, amongst the best in the UK market.
