About us

Whether you’re a charity or a company looking to work with a charity, we have the experience you need


C3 Fundraising Limited was established in 2007 by Cath Cole MInstF (Dip).

Cath started her career in Dixons Group PLC, firstly as a Superstore Manager and then in store marketing at their Head Office in Hemel Hempstead.  After two years travelling round the world, she returned to the UK and happened upon a Corporate Fundraising job in the charity sector – it was nothing more calculated or planned than that!

She quickly expanded her fundraising knowledge to include Trusts & Foundations, then Lottery and project development, followed by Events and Community. As Director of Fundraising, she led a team that managed the full fundraising portfolio, including direct marketing, raffles and legacy fundraising.

In 2007, Cath decided she needed a new challenge and set up C3 Fundraising Limited.  The company’s first client was an NHS charity and this has since become something of a specialty – together with local Hospices. That said, C3 is delighted to work with all types of charities and companies. In our experience, they all face similar challenges which, believe us, can be overcome.
