Global non-profit solutions
AAW Global develops solutions for global clients in need of sustainable funding, leadership, change management expertise and crisis management planning.
Our multi-disciplinary team provides insightful bespoke consultancy that is based on years of experience in strategic and organisational development, fundraising, innovation and start-ups.

We are also a great resource for UK based clients who are looking to gain some sector insight across an international field, helping them learn from and be inspired by similar organisations in other countries and also enabling a full and rigorous benchmarking process.
CASE STUDY | Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement
Creating a global fundraising hub for ICRC
AAW was commissioned by the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement (ICRC, IFRC and National Societies) to project manage and co-ordinate the creation of the Movement’s first ever central fundraising hub.
We supported the Movement to establish the governance mechanisms for the Hub and to develop the Hub’s strategy, work plan and budget.
We are now supporting the following key Hub projects:
- Hub strategy and governance
- Global digital fundraising platform
- Set up of fundraising investment fund
- Global fundraising skillshare
- Global Learning & Development platform and communities of practice
Helping Drive Growth in Asian Markets
WWF created the Asia Pacific Growth Strategy (APGS) in 2008 to support the growth of fundraising income in the Asia Pacific region.
A small team acts as the secretariat of the APGS, and supports the investment in growth opportunities, enables collaborative opportunities at a regional level, and provides capacity building opportunities for fundraisers across the WWF offices in 25 markets in Asia Pacific.
In 2020, APGS asked AAW to undertake a review of the growth potential in the region, particularly looking at key market potential, peer INGO performance analysis, and to provide in-depth assessment of some priority markets. The aim of this review was to evaluate where the INGO could raise more income through strategic investment.
Following a review of external market data, internal topline performance data and through the conducting a series of interviews with WWF Asia Pacific Marketing Directors and CEOs, AAW were able to make a series of recommendations and business cases to drive performance in the region and to present these to the CEOs at their strategic planning meeting.
