Hi, I’m Cath Longley, founder of Good Fundraising. For over 20 years I have successfully raised funds for national, regional and local charities of all sizes in a variety of different fields, throughout the UK. Working closely with trustees, the leadership teams, volunteers and beneficiaries alike, we have worked together to develop the right strategies and approach to ensure that goals are achieved. With successes ranging from securing the salary of a member of staff, the refurbishment of a community centre to a multi-million pound capital build, no project is too big or too small. 

I am a fully certified member of the Institute of Fundraising with a Diploma in Fundraising and Masters Degrees in both Charity Resource Management and Museums Studies. I have extensive experience of fundraising in the fields of health and disability, advocacy, culture, arts, heritage, education, children, young people, and community support.
