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 about the nonprofit sector.
Who Am I?
My name is Brady and I live in British Columbia, Canada, with my wife Liz, dog Melly, and cat Thor. 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.
In 2015, I started my own company, The Josephson Group, to do consulting and unique projects like founding a creative, fundraising and strategy agency, now called Shift Agency, and an online advertising company, Nonprofit Supply Co. I did this after working in technology for companies Chimp and Peer Giving, trying to make charitable giving a part of everyday life, when 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.
