Josephine Eisenberg has 25+ years of experience assisting nonprofit organizations on their growth path through mission-driven strategies.
In her early career, Josephine's passion for working with teens led her to New York City, where she spent four years working closely with at-risk teens. After moving to Sarasota, Josephine was instrumental in creating a youth civic engagement leadership program for local high school students. She also made a significant impact as the program director for one of Sarasota's largest after-school/summer youth programs. Josephine continues to be a strong advocate for youth empowerment.
Redirecting her focus from youth programs to nonprofit development and fundraising, Josephine worked as development coordinator, associate development director, and development director for several local nonprofit organizations.
In 2015 Josephine began working as a nonprofit consultant focusing on project management, event management, program development, donor stewardship, and community outreach. Over the years, her clients have included local, regional, and national nonprofit organizations as well as a college consortium and private foundation.
Josephine has worked with several of The Patterson Foundation’s initiatives in a variety of roles, including Margin & Mission Ignition, Advancing Mission Thrivability, and Fueling Dynamic Fundraising logistics coordinator; Aspirations to Actions support team; Age-Friendly Sarasota/Community for All Ages engagement team; Age-Friendly Festival event planning team; Livable Communities Leadership Workshop & Public Forum logistics team; Age-Friendly Florida Sharing Symposium logistics team; and the Suncoast Campaign for Grade-Level Reading engagement team.
Josephine is a graduate of Jacksonville University, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology and sociology. She is the proud mother and biggest fan of her 24-year-old son, Christopher Eisenberg.
