Hi Everyone! I'm the Co-founder & CEO of DonationMatch.com, a matchmaking platform (companies and events) that streamlines how in-kind donations go to charitable fundraising events. I started it in 2010 due to frustrations with the manual, time-consuming process around soliciting silent auction donations and giveaways from companies that are then flooded with emails and letters they can't handle efficiently. We simplify and/or automate the vetting, response, and delivery for both donors and event leaders.
I have 15+ years of experience as a volunteer Silent Auction Chair/Committee Member on over 50 benefit events and also gathered a plethora of knowledge from DonationMatch Resource Partners. In fact, we just soft-launched our new podcast, Events with Benefits, on iTunes, partnered with Winspire and Danny Hooper Productions. Any feedback and content suggestion is welcome.
I look forward to learning from this group and contributing where I can!
