Australian Centre for Grief and Bereavement "We deeply value our partnership with Wendy Brooks and Partners (WBP). The broad and deep skills and understanding of the not for profit and charity sectors that WBP brings to the table has emboldened us to ask deeper questions about our work and to develop programs and partnerships which go to the core of our mission. Over many years the availability and energy of WBP has created richer partnerships with other organisations and funders. These have resulted in a number of successful funding partnership, but as importantly, has seen the development of strong collaborative relationships within and beyond our sector. Drawing upon their skills in grant writing, strategic planning, project management and their extensive networks, we have been delighted with the success this relationship has garnered for us. The WBP team is approachable and importantly ‘gets us’ and the important work that we do. They share our ambitious goals to make a difference in the world and have been powerful companions as we travel together in achieving them."
Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC) I couldn’t ask for better support for our fundraising work. Working with the Wendy Brooks team has turned fundraising from a somewhat terrifying and onerous part of my job to something that remains challenging, but is also exciting and satisfying. To have been able to fund important work like the Indigenous Child Protection Project, the Asylum Seeker Health Rights Project, StreetCare and Towards Truth as well as building our financial sustainability and relationships through appeals and the dinner has been especially valuable.
Asylum Seeker Resource Centre Wendy Brooks & Partners did an outstanding job for the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre. They helped us develop everything from our Strategic Plan and Strategic Dashboard to giving us the tools and guidance to navigate the complex and uncertain environment faced by NGOs. I could not recommend them highly enough.
Melbourne High School Foundation "Wendy Brooks & Partners have become an integral part of the MHS Foundation team. With only one part-time staff member the Board had limited capacity to fully engage with our extensive database of old boys, parents and friends. The Wendy Brooks and Partners team have supported our Board, staff member and volunteers to build our profile amongst the MHS Community. The team have helped with strategic communications including the project management of a website upgrade, articles for newsletters and social media platforms and the production of a series of fundraising videos. Wendy Brooks and Partners was instrumental in the selection and integration of a new CRM system and supported us to identify, manage and recognise new and existing donors. The team have also helped organise several strategic fundraising and recognition events. This work culminated in a highly successful giving day where we raised over $500,000 towards the much needed renovations of our nearly 100-year-old classrooms by 2027."
Port Phillip EcoCentre Another huge thank you for today’s workshop – a great blend of tangible outcomes, prompts for mind shifts and satisfyingly specific advice. In a room full of facilitators and Big Thinkers, it takes a magic balance to see everyone stand up happy with the experience. Looking forward to more big things together.

I have found them to be skilled in grant applications and very supportive, professional and willing to go the extra mile. Their specialist knowledge has been invaluable and has really helped us achieve our strategic plan. I have greatly benefited from introductions to their great networks of philanthropists. I would highly recommend Wendy Brooks & Partners to any not-for-profit at any stage of their charitable journey”.
Midnight Feast – Theatre that Unites Wendy Brooks & Partners helped me put in place a dynamic board that provides a strong foundation for us to grow as a company. We had to make so many decisions about how to structure and focus Midnight Feast. The gentle yet firm guidance was invaluable for me and helped me to transform my beliefs about what is possible for Midnight Feast as a theatre company
