Julie provides consulting on fund development planning and strategies, donor cultivation, grantwriting and assessment of fundraising systems/capacity. She is also a sought-after strategic planner and program evaluator, using logic models to help organizations track outcomes and crafting user-friendly measurement tools that don’t overwhelm agency staff or clients.

Julie has experience helping a wide variety of nonprofits including youth-serving agencies, museums, arts organizations, drug and alcohol prevention coalitions, environmental groups, veterans, people with disabilities, homeless shelters and government transparency activists to name a few. A nonprofit professional since 1984, Julie worked for the YMCA for 14 years (fund development and program positions), Girl Scouts for nearly five years (Director of Development) and the Planning Council for Health and Human Services for five years (Director of Planning and Development).

Julie has a master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction and a post-graduate certificate in Public Health. She is a member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals and the American Evaluation Association.

“Donations are up . . . number of gifts is up . . . number of donors is up . . . All of these stats are so good for us and I think it’s all thanks to your coaching! I think the personal calls and increased communication were very helpful!”
