Inspiring philanthropy and creating success by providing thoughtful strategic fundraising initiatives

Tony Bretherton

Tony Bretherton knows fundraising and philanthropy. He has led fundraising in six organisations based in four countries over a period of 28 years and has been a senior fundraising consultant since February 2020. Primarily in Australia, Tony now helps education, religious, arts, health and other not-for-profit organisations to raise money and build a philanthropic culture.

Tony can bring creativity, experience, knowledge, and insight to your next fundraising and philanthropic opportunity.

I have established BrethertonConsult in September 2023 to offer best practice fundraising advice and to help not-for-profit organisations embed a culture of philanthropy.






My services are based on significant personal experience and training. I have established fundraising from a zero base, enhanced ongoing fundraising teams, developed successful fundraising strategies, and led major fundraising campaigns ($10.0M plus) in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, and the United Kingdom. I have also provided effective consulting advice in all areas outlined below.
