Our proprietary Ask Model
The Ask Model is formed of 39 data points designed to deliver a rigorous analysis of a charity’s 10 key performance areas, including strategy, culture, impact and innovation.
We rely on it at the beginning and the end of every grant period to:
- Make consistent, informed decisions about funding.
- Identify areas where we can add value by bringing in extra expertise or resource.
- Measure and understand the impact of our donation now and long-term.
- Forge strong relationships with our charity partners, benefiting the wider The Considered Ask community.
The Considered Ask has a proven track record in supporting charities that focus on education, training and mental wellbeing.
We concentrate our donations in these areas because we believe this is how we can have the greatest impact on reducing social inequality in the UK.

The Considered Ask has to date achieved the following and we have bold ambitions for the next five years:
