[PODCAST] Fundraising Legacies and Shared Wisdom

Fundraising Legacies and Shared Wisdom

Wisdom is acquired through challenging experiences and there’s no one who knows more about the best practices of nonprofit leaders than Denver Frederick. Denver has experiences ranging from the first national corporate and nonprofit partnership to interviewing hundreds of nonprofit leaders in the pre and post-pandemic world.

In this episode, Denver highlights of few of his most memorable conversations including why the nonprofit sector was hit so hard during the Covid-19 pandemic, the positive consequences of the world-altering event, and how corporate engagement in philanthropic activities has drastically changed since the restoration of Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.

Denver Frederick is a trusted advisor and executive coach to nonprofit CEOs, acting as a comprehensive resource, confidante, and consultant. In his 40-plus years in the nonprofit sector, he has served as a CEO, led the fundraising campaign to restore the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, and partnered with Michael J. Fox in launching his Parkinson’s Foundation. He pioneered 2 movements that have helped shape the sector: corporate sponsorship and peer-to-peer fundraising.

For the past ten years, Denver has hosted The Business of Giving, a nationally syndicated radio show-turned-podcast. He has taught at the NYU School of Fundraising Management and is a Certified Professional Executive Coach.

Denver’s new book, The Business of Giving: New Best Practices for Nonprofit and Philanthropic Leaders in an Uncertain World takes the best insights from many nonprofit CEOs that he’s had the opportunity to interview and packages them into 20 digestible chapters around topics such as leadership, systems change, scaling for impact, racial equity, and fundraising.
