Donor Relations Officer
South Coast / Southern Willamette Valley
Patrick is thrilled to work with generous donors and nonprofit leaders in Oregon to help them realize their shared goals. Before joining OCF, he completed a masters degree in music and spent a decade doing fundraising, community engagement, and program development (and, occasionally, performing) at such industry-leading arts organizations as Carnegie Hall and the San Francisco Symphony. He first came to Eugene for a job with the Oregon Bach Festival, and quickly fell in love with the landscapes and communities of this amazing state. He spends as much of his free time as possible exploring Oregon's countryside.
“To give away money is an easy matter and in everyone's power. But to decide to whom to give it, and how large, and when, and for what purpose, and how, is neither in everyone's power nor an easy matter.”
