Our Story

Maven was created out of passion and ambition to take the achievements of our sister company, OneSixty, to new heights.

One Sixty was formed with a clear vision and a strong set of values. Sustainability was central to everything that we wanted to do, as was staying connected to our staff and the causes we represented. This came with an inevitable ceiling in terms of size, one which we quickly reached within 3 years.

As fundraisers, we felt that there was so much more we could do to help charities achieve even the most ambitious donor acquisition goals. In the face of having to turn down the opportunity to work with great clients in order to stay true to the values that OneSixty was built on, we created Maven.

Whilst standing as a separate venture, Maven is still driven by the same passion and commitment that started OneSixty. Using our knowledge and expertise, we’re proud to be working alongside charities that need to boost their donor supply – without going against our original business plan…

His experience at Shelter as well as working closely with clients at OneSixty that has driven his passion for helping deliver great donor acquisition programs. As a consultant, Matt has supported charities of all sizes in the UK and abroad.


Matt supported us as a consultant when we were exploring the option of launching a F2F in house program at Oxfam Germany. He asked insightful questions which ensured we took all relevant variables into consideration. By the end of the workshop we had a pretty clear idea of how to move forward, which things needed further exploring and which factors are key to launching an in house program. In addition, Matt provided us with a useful template which we used to build a valid business model upon which we could base our decision. We did decide to launch the in house program “Oxfam on the Road”. It’s successfully up and running and we just love it. It is great looking back at how it all started at the table in our workshop. Thanks, Matt, for bringing your experience, advice and buzz to the table.
