Meet The Team

Operations Manager

Peter Donnelly

About Peter

I come to the nonprofit world through the performing arts, having spent the past 4 years doing freelance costuming work with theatres across Seattle. Doing this work, I discovered a talent for organizing information and working with teams of all shapes and sizes.

For Ostara, I facilitate communications with clients around our proposals and contracts, and bring our marketing communications to life. Ultimately, I know how vital it is for nonprofits to have confidence around their fundraising culture, which is why I’m thrilled to be in an environment where I can help facilitate the change that our clients need.

Prior to working with Ostara, I worked at Seattle organizations including the 5th Avenue Theatre, ACT Theatre, Artist Trust, Seattle Opera, Pacific Northwest Ballet, and Teatro Zinzanni. 

Fun facts about Peter :

  • I've given a tour of Seattle Art Museum galleries dressed as a lumpy, striped French-Canadian clown
  • Consultant Ella Mahler and I met in a middle school improv class

    Ready to discuss how we can work together?
