Lauren Brownstein

Lauren Brownstein has been working in philanthropy for more than 20 years as a fundraiser, educator, program manager, and administrator. She helps non-profit organizations, philanthropists, and grant makers achieve their goals through PITCH: Fundraising and Philanthropy Consulting, her fundraising and philanthropy consulting practice.

She has raised millions of dollars for museums, workforce development programs, student support organizations, community centers, and more. Her areas of expertise include: foundation relations (grant writing, prospect research, cultivation and stewardship), corporate sponsorship, campaigns, and staff and board training. In addition, Lauren helps clients with a variety of writing projects, such as annual reports and staff training materials. She has a knack for clean, concise, and compelling writing, finding a way to make each client’s unique story jump off the page.

Lauren has led numerous workshops to help individual donors define their philanthropic goals and create charitable giving plans that reflect their values, passions, and priorities. She manages the grant making process for the Tranquil Space Foundation, a grant maker that supports programs for women and girls. She has taken part in philanthropic advisor training through 21/64, an organization devoted to advising family philanthropies.

As a reflection of her commitment to philanthropy and volunteerism, Lauren has served on the boards of several nonprofits and volunteers each week with cancer patients at a local hospital. She earned a Masters in Teaching in Museum Education from the George Washington University (where she has served as a lecturer on museum fundraising) and a Bachelors with High Distinction from the University of Virginia.
