Christy Zeitz

Fellowship Square


Christy Zeitz has created a lasting impact on many organizations during her 30-year career serving in leadership roles in management, fundraising, marketing and program development. Zeitz has raised millions of dollars for nonprofit organizations, associations, and political campaigns. She has worked tirelessly to build strong relationships with donors, community partners, investors, government agencies and elected officials. For many years, Zeitz has helped nonprofits understand the power of strategic partnerships and how to leverage these relationships to garner resources beyond just the dollars.

In 2017, Zeitz was hired as the first CEO for Fellowship Square Foundation, a nonprofit started in 1960 that provides affordable housing and services to low-income seniors. In the last five years, she has grown the organization both in reputation and financial reserves. She has implemented a “best practices” approach to governance, management and resident life at Fellowship Square’s four communities that are home to 850 older adults. Under her leadership, the organization has seen record growth in its income and project reserves, fundraising and event income, volunteer engagement and community partner support and created a diverse and engaged board of directors. The organization has two ambitious development projects – an $86M new development in partnership with Enterprise to preserve 240 units of affordable senior housing in Reston, Va.; and a $22M renovation to Hunters Woods Fellowship House, also in Reston. Both projects are expected to be completed by summer 2022.

Prior to Fellowship Square, Zeitz served as executive director for HomeAid Northern Virginia, a nonprofit that builds and renovates housing and shelters for the homeless. She volunteers her time for many nonprofit and professional organizations, including the the Housing Association for Nonprofit Developers. She holds a B.A. in international studies and political science from West Virginia University and lives in Alexandria, Va.
