Julie Fitzgerald

Oregon Director of Philanthropy
The Nature Conservancy

“What do I love about my job? Every day I get to work to help protect important places — for nature and people. What’s not to love?”
After applying her bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from Oregon State University to run the family sheep ranch, it was Julie’s experiences as a community volunteer raising needed funds for 4-H and public radio that led to a career in philanthropy. She is past president of the Oregon Chapter of the International Association of Fundraising Professionals and holds advanced certificates in planned giving and fundraising management. Prior to joining the Conservancy in 2011, she led the medical development program for Oregon Health & Science University.
