We are responding to this design tender to explore a partnership arrangement with the Milton Keynes Community Foundation. We are keen to establish our company further in Milton Keynes. As a key organisation operating within the Milton Keynes business community we see potential benefits partnering with MKCF. We know Shahnaz Hussain personally and Vanessa Bradley via the Northampton Community Foundation and have met Danielle Porteus through networking.

For two years we partnered with the NCF and the relationship was beneficial for both parties so we have a proposal: In return for our in-kind marketing, design and digital services we would look to benefit from some of the following opportunities that MKCF may provide: • Introductions, networking and access to business connections in MK • Access to office space in Acorn House • Promotion of beach within MKCF marketing activity including PR, on website, literature etc • Possible sponsorship of MKCF marketing initiatives as they arise • Any other ideas that develop

Northamptonshire Community Foundation

Northampton Hope Centre

The most relevant example of our work is for Northamptonshire Community Foundation. For a period of 2 years we operated as their marketing agency on a pro bono basis and were instrumental in helping to develop the Northamptonshire 100 Club which included all branding and collateral. We also developed a number of fundraising campaigns such as Hearts & Minds and Surviving Winter as well as a number of annual reviews.

We have also worked in partnership with Northampton Hope Centre, a charity that tackles homelessness and rebuilds lives. We developed their branding, working on fund raising initiatives such as Black Tie Gala Dinners and the development of propositions for some of their commercial fundraising activities such as Catering.

As part of the partnership, Steve Bishop sat on the grants panel to decide on the distribution of funds to local community groups. Our knowledge of the Community Foundation landscape is detailed as a result and we are fully supportive of the ethos and activities required to help MKCF achieve its objectives.

Steve Bishop sat as a Non-Executive Director and marketing advisor on the board of Hope Enterprises, the commercial arm of the Charity.

structure As each project is unique it is difficult to give you our pricing structure in detail. We normally charge our clients per project and always provide a detailed estimate based on a brief from the client. The estimate reflects the time it takes to undertake a project based on our experience and knowledge of similar projects and includes up to 2 sets of authors corrections.

Our proposal does not include these hourly charges for our design services in return for the proposed partnership. Where production is outsourced to a third party such as a printer we will act as a print manager, putting the project out to tender and offering the best value tender at cost.

For the record our hourly rate for our services is ÂŁ70.
