Lisa Forrest

Lisa provides operational project management for FCNL’s Development Department. This includes key functions in the areas of donor stewardship, research, and Development Committee support. Born in central Pennsylvania, Lisa came to Washington, D.C. to study theater at George Washington University and has been a proud Washingtonian ever since.

She’s had a wide-ranging career in the non-profit community, including fundraising positions at some of Washington’s leading theaters, its flagship public TV station, The Washington Ballet, and the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. Lisa also did some development consulting for a domestic violence service and a women’s homeless shelter. Along the way, she squeezed in some professional theater production and casting projects.

Away from FCNL, she can often be found in her kitchen (trying hard to be a better and healthier cook) and at the theater. Lisa’s niece Brie is a proud 2014 graduate of Germantown Friends School in Philadelphia, and is thrilled that her aunt is part of the valuable work being done by FCNL.
