Mrs Deborah Loveluck

Development Director, Fellows' Steward

Deborah Loveluck has been Fellow and Director of Development and Alumni Relations at St Catharine’s College, Cambridge since 2007. She is chiefly responsible for devising the strategy for the College’s fundraising, alumni relations and communications programmes. Leading all major gift and legacy fundraising, she launched the St Catharine’s Campaign in 2009, with the aim of raising £30 million for buildings, the College Endowment and teaching posts; the Campaign achieved its target in June 2016.

In 2019 we launched ‘Our College Our Future’ campaign to secure £65 million for the benefit of students and to strength and sustain the College for generations to come. The Campaign enables St Catharine’s to invest in world-class teaching and research, provide generous student support, enrich College life and execute a planned renewal of our buildings and spaces. To date we have raised £55 million.

In addition, Deborah was the Chair of the Cambridge Colleges Development Group (CCDG) between 2013-2016, which serves as a discussion forum for the development and alumni relations professionals in all 31 of the Cambridge Colleges. She was also Chair of the Colleges Development Directors’ Committee (CDDC) during the same period, which seeks to maximise the benefits of development activities for the Colleges and the University of Cambridge alike. Prior to 2007, Deborah was Assistant Development Director of King’s College, Cambridge, for four years.
