Director of Major Gifts

Lori Franzke


Lori Franzke joined the Fairmount Park Conservancy team in February 2024. In her role as Director of Major Gifts, Lori leads the Conservancy’s efforts cultivating and stewarding individual donors at the major gifts level who support our mission of a vibrant, high-quality, and equitable park system for everyone.

Lori brings over 20 years of fundraising experience to the Conservancy, including work at other Philadelphia organizations, such as Outward Bound, The Franklin Institute, Philadelphia Zoo, and Girl Scouts. When she’s not advocating for city parks, she enjoys spending time in them with her husband, Scott, and their three kids. Together they also enjoy baseball, raising chickens, and traveling.
