Elsie Listrom, CFRE
Senior Vice President, Fundraising Services

Hi, I am Elsie … I currently serve as the Senior Vice President for Fundraising Services at Gabriel Group. With more than 20 years of direct fundraising experience at nonprofit organizations, my primary concern is providing practical, results-driven fundraising solutions for our clients. Using data analytics to develop strategies for annual giving, mid-point, major donor programs and planned giving lead generation, we create broad-based, multi-channel campaigns that maximize net revenue for the organization’s mission.

My past work life has included serving as Director of Development with the Missouri Historical Society; Director of Development for the Society for the Performing Arts in Houston, Texas; and fundraising positions at the University of Houston Foundation, San Diego State University and my alma mater Minnesota State University at Moorhead where I graduated with a degree in speech & theater.

When I am not in the office, I enjoy traveling, gardening and scuba diving.

My first job was setting pins at the local bowling alley for $.10 per lane when I was 10.

As a child, I wanted to grow up to be an archaeologist.
