Lisa M. Ertl

Director of Donor Relations


Lisa joined our Development Department in 2010 and has brought her can-do attitude to work every day since then. No detail or kindness is too small for her attention—a nicety that many colleagues and supporters recognize as “Lisa’s hand.”  Lisa devised Natural Lands’ first-ever major fundraising event—now the annual Stardust! Summer Celebration—in 2013 when we celebrated Marguerite and Gerry Lenfest at the opening of the Lenfest Center at ChesLen Preserve. “It was magical!”

Prior to working for Natural Lands, Lisa had a decade of development experience in the Philadelphia non-profit sector most recently with Settlement Music School and the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts.

Lisa holds a B.A. in International Studies and Politics and Government.
