New Transaid role for Maddy Matheson

Transaid appoints Maddy Matheson as head of fundraising, tasked with expanding initiatives and managing international partnerships.


International development organisation Transaid has appointed Maddy Matheson as its new head of fundraising. Maddy joined Transaid’s fundraising team in 2021, most recently serving as communications and corporate partnerships manager, where she was responsible for assisting the development and delivery of an ambitious fundraising strategy.

Within her new role she will head up Transaid’s fundraising operations, managing and developing a small but hardworking team which secures the majority of Transaid’s un-restricted funding. Together, they will be responsible for running events within the UK and internationally, managing more than 30 corporate partners and prospects, building supporter relationships and all communications activities.

Maddy said:

Transaid is an incredible organisation to work for and I am excited by the opportunity to take the lead on fundraising and contribute further to our mission of transforming lives through safe, available, and sustainable transport. We are in the fourth year of the UN’s Global Plan for the Decade of Action for Road Safety, and there is so much more we want to achieve as we continue to scale our work. Growing our income from fundraising will be central to this, as we look to expand our road safety and access to healthcare projects in sub-Saharan Africa.

Caroline Barber, chief executive of Transaid, added:

Maddy has done a superb job since joining us. Building on her existing experience of the transport and logistics sector, she has really strengthened our communications, quickly deepened her relationships with the industry, taken on increased responsibility and is held in high regard by our team, partners and trustees. Maddy’s promotion is incredibly well deserved.
