About CharityJen

Nice to Meet You!

Welcome to the CharityJen network! I’m Jen Newmeyer CFRE, aka CharityJen, a digital fundraising strategist specializing in integrated campaigns and online engagement. 

I work tirelessly to support nonprofit professionals as we navigate the daily challenges, opportunities and delights of working in the charitable sector. Having worked in and with national and local organizations for over 20 years, I’m well aware of the issues we face on a regular basis. Many of these stories are documented in my book, “The Insider’s Guide to Online Fundraising: Finding Success When Surrounded by Skeptics,” and featured on my podcast, “From the Nest with CharityJen: Where Fundraising Takes Flight.” 

 Additionally, I provide a number of resources through my CharityJen network including:

My specialties include multi-channel (integrated) campaigns with a focus on digital engagement, acquisition and retention strategies, audience segmentation, project plans built on the growth funnel, strategic campaign planning and budget preparation, ambassador programs, and establishing partnerships for maximum success. With fierce determination and an abundance of creativity, I’ve been able to raise over $10 million in online revenue for nonprofit organizations while managing development budgets of over $25 million and leading teams through groundbreaking campaign projects.

My past experience includes a national nonprofit association management firm, a city arts organization, regional food bank, and volunteer work in homeless and housing, animal shelters, and youth development. I am currently the Senior Director of Digital Fundraising Strategy for PBS and VP of Education for the Association of Fundraising Professionals DC Chapter. I am also a Certified Fundraising Executive through CFRE International and a contributing writer for NonProfitPRO magazine.

As a passionate digital professional, I maintain a robust social media presence. You can connect with me on LinkedIn, Instagram or Threads. Find me on YouTube. On Mastodon, I’m on the mindly.social server or search for @charityjen@mindly.social. While I still have an account on Twitter, my activity is diminished.
