During 2019, Kate worked at British Asian Trust as Interim Director of Fundraising whilst they recruited to the permanent role.

As part of the senior leadership team, Kate worked closely with the CEO and Executive Director to secure support from the South Asian Diaspora. She helped to build the capacity of the fundraising team, created a new HNWI Fundraising Strategy and introduced new ways of working to strengthen supporter relationships.

“Kate joined the team at an exciting and critical point for the British Asian Trust.  We have massively ambitious plans to deliver social change in South Asia and needed a senior, experienced fundraising leader to keep the team to task whilst we recruited a new Director of Fundraising.  Kate gave us exactly what we needed; a healthy dose of fundraising expertise and sense of direction, offsetting a focus on results with good humour and a genuine desire to see the team succeed.” 

Richard Hawkes, CEO, British Asian Trust
