Julie Bianchi, CFRE

I believe the sweet spot between big picture thinking and the details is where a successful fundraising strategy is born. My experience in fundraising, finance, and board leadership over the past decade is the underpinning for my practical and creative approach to consulting. I lean on generative questions to help reveal new paths forward to long-term fundraising success.

I have significant fundraising campaign experience across all areas of the nonprofit sector, with goals ranging from $1 million to $300 million. Just as others have pushed me forward in my fundraising career, I am committed to investing in the future of our profession. I serve as a Charter Board member and Vice President of Programs for the Association of Fundraising Professionals - Advancement Northwest Chapter, am a Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE), and earned a Certificate in Fundraising Management from the University of Washington.
