Office of Gift Development

Caitie Deranek Stewart

Associate Director of Development

Caitie Deranek Stewart joined the Office of Gift Development in 2014. She develops relationships with leadership annual fund donors, oversees reunion giving campaigns, and works with the Dean’s Council Board of Directors, a volunteer board with a mission to encourage annual giving of $1,000 or more to IU School of Medicine.

Caitie holds a bachelor of music degree in vocal performance and a bachelor of arts in psychology from the University of Indianapolis and completed her master of arts in philanthropic studies from the IU Lilly Family School of Philanthropy and master of public affairs with a concentration in nonprofit management from the School of Public and Environmental Affairs at IUPUI in 2016.

Caitie’s passion for healthcare education and research stems from several sources including ongoing battles by loved ones with rare and difficult diseases. She firmly believes that good health is a basic human right and the cures for many major illnesses are out there if only the support existed for the scientists to discover them.

In addition to her work at IU School of Medicine, Caitie is active in the local nonprofit community and is interested in improving the practice of fundraising around the world. She is a professional vocalist and maintains a small private voice studio. She enjoys reading, cooking, and spending time with her family.
