Natalie J. Fleischman is passionate about fundraising, and is one of those rare development professionals who identified academic university fundraising as her career choice when she was an undergraduate in college. 

She is an expert at creating strategic plans, and is able to design, build, fix and lead development teams and volunteers to achieve their campaign and fundraising goals. Natalie is recognized as a player/coach, with infectious energy and enthusiasm, and an impressive track record of working with internal and external constituents to close large gifts. She has deep experience and expertise working in the areas of Medical Schools/Centers, Arts & Sciences, and International, Business, and Law sectors. 

Natalie is currently serving as assistant vice president for development and alumni relations at the George Washington University School of Business (GWSB). Serving 55,000 alumni undergraduate and graduate business alumni, Natalie and her team are developing innovative and creative outreach to engage their constituency and raise increased philanthropic support. 

Natalie served most recently as a senior consultant for Washburn & McGoldrick. Prior to teaching others how to do the work of fundraising, she served as the senior director of major gifts for Stanford Medical Center which during her tenure was in the middle of a $2 billion fundraising effort, now completed.

Before joining the Stanford team in February 2013, Natalie worked as vice president and executive director of the Foundation for Fletcher Allen Health Care (now University of Vermont Medical Center) at the University of Vermont.  Before that, she was vice president for philanthropy at World Learning (formerly known as SIT and EIL, or the School for International Training and the Experiment in International Living) in Brattleboro, VT; campaign manager and senior director of major gifts for the College of Arts & Sciences at UVM; director of major gifts and director of the New York Regional Programs at the University of Pennsylvania; and in a variety of leadership roles at both the central development office and the law school of New York University.
