Jason is passionate about helping teams and individuals build authentic relationships and effective strategies to connect with partners who are enthusiastic about funding your work and changing the world.  He serves as partnerships director for a non-profit engineering firm that is fighting the global water crisis.

 

He loves to leverage the art of listening and emotional intelligence to bring out the best in donors, leaders, organizations and those impacted by a non-profit.  He believes fund raising can be a natural, life-giving process that helps organizations scale their impact.  He is especially glad to equip those who are challenged by the counter-cultural aspects of development.

 

Jason’s 25 years in professional fund-raising have given him experience in annual campaigns, major gifts, grants and foundations, and events.  He has enjoyed leading teams engaged in individual donor development as well.  

 

Jason lives with his family in the New York City Metro area where they love the intersection of cultures and the opportunity to have a global impact.
