About Louise

Photo of Louise, charity fundraising consultant

Louise has 12 years’ experience in major gifts fundraising at charities of all sizes and cause areas. As a former Fundraising Director, a current trustee, and from extensive work with charity CEOs and Boards Louise has a great perspective from both sides – understanding the challenges of charity leadership as well as of fundraisers. This is crucial for successful major donor programmes.

Louise was organised, pragmatic, a great communicator and a pleasure to have around. She left us with much stronger foundations and a clear plan for the future. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.

Louise is great to work with; she hits the ground at a sprint and brings passion, enthusiasm and personal commitment to every challenge. Her direct, utterly professional approach cuts through to deliver the plan and the tactics the charity needs to succeed.

Louise is great to work with: down to earth, straight-forward, committed to delivering the best.

After a sales and marketing career at Unilever, Louise increased income for a range of charities: Tommy’s, Samaritans and RNID/Action on Hearing Loss. As Director of Fundraising at Woking Hospice she led the appeal which raised £2 million for a new Hospice build and set up a major donor programme from scratch.

Louise consistently attends training and industry events so is fully up to speed on regulations, such as GDPR, and on philanthropic developments. She is studying for the Certificate in Philanthropic Psychology, a full member of the Institute of Fundraising (MINstF), member of Consultants for Good and a mentor for the Institute of Fundraising’s major donor programme.

Outside of fundraising Louise is a keen rock climber, she leads her local Beaver Scout group and loves spending time with her family – her husband, two energetic boys, a cat and two chickens!
