Thanks for checking out re: charity. This blog/site was started as a way to vent about issues and share ideas to improve the sector. As time went on I discovered that there is some value and need for a place to share some new thoughts and thinking around charity, fundraising, marketing, story telling and more. This video from Dan Pallotta is a great starting point for why we need to start changing the conversation around the nonprofit sector.
Who Am I?
My name is Brady Josephson and I’m living in British Columbia, Canada. I am passionate about the poor and changing charity. Perhaps more importantly, I’m dedicated to doing something about it. I blog about issues of leadership, management, fundraising and overall strategy as it relates to nonprofits on re: charity and contribute occasionally to the Huffington Post.
I studied Business and Economics as an undergrad before going on to get my Masters of Nonprofit Administration from North Park University in Chicago, Illinois. Spent a few years as the Director of Resource Development at a start-up nonprofit in Chicago called Spark Ventures and then for Opportunity International Canada as the National Director, Marketing & Communications. I am a member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) in Vancouver an am an adjunct professor at the School of Business and Nonprofit Management at my Alma Mater.
In 2015, I started my own creative, fundraising and strategy agency called Shift Charity. After working in technology for companies Chimp and Peer Giving, trying to make charitable giving a part of everyday life, I saw a need to help companies and causes shift their thinking as it relates to raising capital that can do more good in our world. I’ve since created Shift Philanthropy Inc. which oversees companies, like Shift Charity, and initiatives to help more people give and more causes thrive. I’d love to connect with you on LinkedIn, Twitter or via email. Thanks for reading!
