Beneficiaries of our Outreach programme have included registered charities of all kinds, educational establishments, good cause organisations that exist to provide practical help that seems in short supply from elsewhere and even the charitable elements of other Livery Companies.
The Marketors’ proven ability and willingness as a Livery Company to provide our marketing expertise and best practice in a well proven, structured way is much appreciated by the recipient organisations, as confirmed by their comments in the project completion document.
The Outreach programme does not compete with fee charging marketing providers. Outreach’s role is to advise and support those good causes, of all sizes, who need professional marketing support while having little or no marketing expertise or budget for marketing.
Outreach volunteer marketing consultants, called “Outreach Directors”, participate by donating their time and their expertise for projects that are pre-defined in writing and assisted by Outreach Committee members. Outreach Directors advise and support the organisation’s people who do the marketing work, so they can continue to implement plans when the Outreach project ends. Some Outreach projects can be delivered with as little as ten hours’ volunteer support, spread by arrangement with the client, over weeks or months. This enables all Marketors, at whatever stage of their marketing careers, to contribute some time as an Outreach programme volunteer to help others. When Outreach Directors put something back into the wider community, many are surprised by the privileged access that they enjoy to a wide variety of charitable causes across the UK.
Each year Outreach Directors provide good causes with thousands of hours of structured Outreach project support. Please help us to do even more by finding out how you can become a volunteer on the Outreach programme. Good cause organisations across the UK contact the Outreach programme for help - one could be waiting for a volunteer like you to help them improve their marketing activities. To apply, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org
Perhaps you know a local worthy charity or cause that could benefit from improving its marketing with some free advice from the Marketors’ Outreach programme? Do let us know – again, the initial contact is email@example.com

The Worshipful Company of Marketors is pleased to announce the completion of another successful project of pro-bono marketing support to a small charity.
At a time when many UK charities are concerned for their financial viability, the Worshipful Company of Marketors, the livery company for marketing professionals, has launched its new online fundraising and marketing guide for smaller charities.
One of the great joys of the Marketors’ Outreach Programme work is seeing projects that we support with advice and guidance reach fruition. At 12 noon on Friday, 17th June and again at 4pm on Saturday, 18th June, a new musical based on the dramatic life of London’s former patron saint, Thomas Becket, was staged for the general public in a specially built open-air theatre, amid the medieval splendour of Guildhall Yard.
Over 120 years ago, a gentle Sudanese woman named Josephine found her vocation in the convent, having endured years of slavery across three continents. Today, a hidden sanctuary for women victims of trafficking bears the name of Saint Josephine Bakhita, the patron saint of modern slavery.
Alongside our Outreach work we also help talented individuals to develop their marketing careers and decision making skills via a high-level, confidential mentoring service.
