CEO, Co-Founder

Seed was founded by Dan Reed, a philanthropy executive with over 15 years of frontline and leadership experience in philanthropic fundraising. He has helped raise over $50 million dollars in private philanthropy, led teams of up to 15 fundraisers, and supported leaders through significant organizational change.


Dan served the Denver Public Schools Foundation for three years during a time of major transition, and then joined Morris Animal Foundation as the Director of Corporate Sponsorships. Dan was promoted to Chief Development Officer and served in this role until 2016 when his passion to coach fundraisers led him to launch Seed as a full-time pursuit. Since then, Seed has partnered with over 45 organizations, bringing clarity and strategy to their greatest challenges.


Dan’s passion for philanthropy has guided his conviction for the occupation of fundraisers and the belief that fundraisers serve the world as intentional catalysts of generosity.
