Julie Lacouture is the founder of Good Ways Inc, a consulting firm that helps nonprofit organizations raise money, awareness, and support using digital tools and good old-fashioned strategy. Julie has worked with organizations including MLK Community Health Foundation in South LA, Disability Rights California, the Arts Council of Santa Cruz County, and the California Community Foundation. She teaches Digital Fundraising at UCLA Extension.
According to Julie’s parents, she “used to have a marketing job” and now she’s “doing some save the world thing.” What they mean to say is that Julie has worked in communications and fundraising at some great non-profits including DonorsChoose.org, the Massachusetts Coalition against Domestic Violence, and Peace Games. She did start her career in corporate PR and Advertising where she drove a hotdog across the country for Oscar Mayer and was a copywriter for McDonald’s, Coldwell Banker, and other brands.
She holds an MBA from UCLA and degrees in Psychology and Advertising from Syracuse University.
