Katie O’Donnell

Hi! I’m Katie and I’m the Trust’s Fundraising Manager. I source funding so we can carry out our huge range of projects, our outdoor training programmes to help young people learn new skills and get on the path to work to ambitious developments such as the new Water Play area at The Falkirk Wheel.

As the Trust relies entirely on the support of our funders, big and small, to carry out our work, I’ve got a very important role. It’s a lot of pressure but seeing a project I’ve helped find funding for make a real difference to people’s lives, whether that’s a young person graduating from canal college or kids enjoying learning about the history of the Monkland Canal in the Vulcan, makes me incredibly proud. I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.

Get in touch with me if you represent an organisation looking for a potential project partner, or if you’re are an organisation, company or individual who would like to help us create a brighter future for the people of Scotland through a donation or fundraising activity.
