Catherine Deakin

Strategy & Fundraising

Catherine has over 15 years’ experience in the charity sector, including four years as Deputy CEO and Director of Fundraising and Communications and fundraising roles at Tommy’s, Girlguiding and Hospice UK. She is also a trustee for the inspirational grant making charity, the Royal College of Nursing Foundation. 

Catherine has raised multi-millions for the causes where she has worked and has expertise across all fundraising income streams. She specialises in the high-value disciplines: trust prospecting and applications, corporate partnerships, soliciting major donors, and high-value events. This includes winning the Poundland partnership for Tommy’s worth over three million pounds, personally securing five, six and seven figure gifts from individuals and trusts and foundations, and winning The Telegraph newspaper partnership, who described her pitch as the best they had ever seen.

Catherine was recently recognised in Fundraising Magazine’s 25 Under 35 list of outstanding young fundraisers, for her efforts supporting fundraisers during the pandemic.
