Capital Campaign and Fundraising Consultant
Liza Springmeyer is a passionate fundraising professional who specializes in capital campaigns, major gift programs, donor stewardship, and community engagement. She loves working with organizations while they transform their ability to fulfill their mission through focused fundraising efforts.
Liza recently completed the Thrive Campaign for Peace House, a domestic violence prevention, shelter and support organization serving Summit and Wasatch Counties. The Thrive Campaign was a coordinated effort with community stakeholders and local governments which raised over $12 M to build the Peace House Community Campus, including over $6 M in private philanthropic support. This campus will, for the first time, provide all Peace House services in one secure and public location, with the addition of much needed transitional housing. Additionally, the Thrive Campaign successfully raised community awareness of the issues of domestic abuse, family violence and sexual assault to help create a community where peace can thrive.
Previously, Liza managed the $11 M capital campaign to expand and renovate the Ronald McDonald House on South Temple and create a Ronald McDonald Family Room at Primary Children’s Hospital. The campaign was honored as a best practice model for Ronald McDonald House Charities and was recognized at the Ronald McDonald House Charities Global Conference in 2015. Liza also managed the Cornerstones of Love Grand Givers Program, an ongoing major gift program for Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Intermountain Area.
