If You’re Looking To Grow Your Major Giving Program , Then You’re In The Right Place…

You Might Have Seen Me On


I run a global consultancy in Zurich, formerly a major gift officer at the American Red Cross and Doctors without Borders in Switzerland. I earned advanced degrees and training in research-based fundraising from Dr. Adrian Sargeant and Dr. Jen Shang in the US/UK.


In addition to being a Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE), I’m a Master Trainer with more than fifteen years of experience in training and mentoring. I spent a decade teaching and mentoring students of diverse backgrounds at two large US universities while working on my PhD about social justice and the environment.


Having lived and worked across North America and Europe, I’ve learned a thing or two about building relationships that extend beyond borders and communities. Being a bridge is my superpower #RelationshipsAreEverything

I’ve worked with biggies and teeny-tiny nonprofits to boost donor engagement and loyalty…

Hello there!

I’m Julie Berthoud,

I help you apply research-based strategies that will propel your organization forward to receive more funding for your mission.

Over the past several years, several biggies, such as the American Red Cross and Doctors without Borders asked me to step aboard as frontline major gift officer to develop their donor portfolios. Managing numerous multi-million dollar portfolios, gave me a keen insight into what it takes to grow major giving.

Last year I decided to branch out on my own to help make an even bigger impact.
