Value Proposition:
I’m passionate about helping nonprofits raise more revenue for their missions. Online channels need to be mined effectively to grow and thrive going forward. And they are certainly where our next generation of major donors will be found. The nonprofit space is still largely served by older legacy platforms. Richard’s particular expertise in newer technology and cutting edge strategy allows for informed discussions about the tools and tactics needed to drive more revenue.  My working knowledge of nonprofit challenges, platforms and the agency ecosystems serving them is a valued resource. 

About Richard:
Richard lives in Buffalo New York on a suburban homestead with a hidden garden and wood carving studio. 

Little known fact: Richard found the first P2P customer for Convio and that is how TeamRaiser started!

I’d love discussing your challenges and goals for growth. 
I hear you, I know you and I really help!
