It all starts with YOU. You’re a force for good.
And there’s no limit to what we can do together.
I’m an international fundraising strategist & consultant showing you proven ways to grow deep relationships with your donors.
I am here to answer all your donor relationship questions, whether you are a newbie or a seasoned fundraiser, director, or board member. You can schedule a one-on-one “pick my brains” call or we can set up a specific project to work on based on your objectives.
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 my degrees and training in evidence-based fundraising from Dr. Adrian Sargeant and Dr. Jen Shang in the US/UK.
Trainer and Mentor
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.
Global Relationship Builder
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
What others say about working with me:
“I have found Julie to be a passionate fundraiser who is well connected and always up to date when it comes to developments in the fundraising world. Julie puts the donor at the heart of her work and is definitely a good sparring partner if you want to develop your fundraising program.”
– Rahel Christen, Senior Fundraising Manager Foundations and Major Giving, Pro Juventute, Switzerland
“In our collaboration, Julie was honest and seeking my thought-leadership. She was open to alternative approaches to sharing information. In my case it was the use of narrative as a teaching tool. And she was a real person, kind and open. I’d absolutely recommend working with her! She cultivates spaces of openness and safety, which help us create belonging environments. She sees herself as an active participant in the pursuit of justice. She is not a by-stander. I love that she prioritizes the relationship, which speaks to the interdependence we need to have in order to affect change. Julie is my sister in this struggle for freedom! Muah”
– Nneka Allen, Owner Empathy Agency, Canada
“Julie is a proven fundraising specialist and brings many years of experience from her engagements in the USA, Germany, and Switzerland. Her international background is a huge asset and she makes it relevant to the realities of Swiss organizations. I very much enjoy working with her . She understands the concerns of NPOs quickly and implements them conceptually, she is emphatic and warm – and above all I can always have a good laugh with her. I can highly recommend her as a fundraising consultant!”
