We understand that supporters make a charity.

We ensure our clients maintain their existing relationships and develop new ones with supporters by adopting a responsible, sensitive and friendly approach to fundraising. We treat all supporters fairly and with respect and act at all times with the supporters’ best interests at heart.

Who We Are?

Set up in 2000 by Helen Suffell, we have developed alongside our clients and according to our mutual needs, which has resulted in the creation of a responsive, innovative and flexible organisation of which we are extremely proud.

What We Do

We work with over 70 charities (of differing sizes) on a range of campaigns, making over 200,000 calls per year. We work with you to develop innovative and bespoke telephone fundraising campaigns which compliment your existing fundraising activities.

Testimonials

“It’s clear to us that CPRE is being really well represented and I’m sure our members – as are we – have been impressed by the warm, informative and courteous manner of the conversations that have taken place.”
Campaign to Protect Rural England
“We were blown away by the results we achieved and the quality of the conversations with our supporters. Final results included over 44,000 petition signers and over 600 new members – a huge dent in our yearly target. We’ve also made some very interesting new relationships with individuals and organisations with whom we can work in partnership to achieve more of our vision.”
Surfers Against Sewage
“Cumbria Wildlife Trust has used QTS for a variety of membership recruitment and fundraising campaigns since 2007. QTS has always given us good advice on which campaigns are working and are not afraid to say if something isn’t. The administration staff are incredibly helpful and very efficient and our members often tell us that the callers are friendly and polite. Working with QTS has definitely boosted our long term income and has helped enormously with our retention rates. I can’t recommend them highly enough.”
Cumbria Wildlife Trust
“We have worked with QTS on a range of telephone fundraising and supporter service calls over many years. We like their friendly, flexible service and the added insight and expertise they bring to our campaign planning. They have played a key role in helping us to improve our supporter experience, increase the return on our investment in membership and convert contacts to supporters.”
Marine Conservation Society
“Derbyshire Wildlife Trust have been working with QTS for a number of years with one off and regular campaigns all being part of our work. From the office staff to the telephone operators we have always been impressed with the friendliness and level of service we have received. As a charity we value every penny we spend and QTS help us to raise both funds and awareness which all goes towards looking after wildlife in Derbyshire.”
Derbyshire Wildlife Trust
“I like the fact that they get results without being pushy – it allows the donor to genuinely decide for themselves.”
Prospect Hospice
“Upgrade calls have been a fixture of the IG programme at Sue Ryder for many years (and in most DM programmes I have worked on). If carried out correctly, they allow you to deepen engagement with your regular giving supporters while raising more income from your programme. We weren’t sure what the response would be like in the current climate, but we have seen record results and fantastic feedback from our supporters.”
Sue Ryder
“I have been using the services of QTS for around three years, and am very happy with their professionalism. Due to their many years’ experience, they provide advice regarding the best way of tackling campaigns. For Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, they provide welcome calls, and have conducted two upgrade campaigns. I would not hesitate to recommend QTS to other charities’ – Christine Setchell, Membership Development Manager.”
Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust
“QTS have consistently delivered high quality, flexible telemarketing services, on time and to budget.”
SeeAbility
“The campaign reinforced our belief that thank you calls are worth it! These campaigns are our chance to show supporters how much we appreciate them and to get to know them better. The best thing about the campaign was seeing how delighted some of our supporters were to receive the call and what it meant to them. We listened to call recordings where supporters happily chatted away with QTS staff. And it’s fair to say we couldn’t have done better ourselves.”
