Brandon's passion for CSR and charitable giving span a diverse and successful career. From ground-breaking work in the CSR software space to supporting one of the largest workplace giving campaigns in the world, Brandon specializes in helping CSR programs of all sizes find and fit the right technology platforms, as well as transforming nonprofit fundraising strategies to adapt to today's newest technologies and donor expectations.
In the early 2000's, Brandon founded Donation Depot, a multi-client CSR giving platform that helped corporate and nonprofit clients raise millions in response to 911. Eventually, Donation Depot was acquired by a public company Kintera in one of the first 'roll ups' of giving software in the industry. And while Brandon and Gary were friends and competitors prior to that acquisition, they teamed up at Kintera when Gary's company, KindMark was also acquired. Brandon and Gary have been working together in one form or fashion ever sense.
Brandon later launched WPG Solutions, his second CSR giving platform. He would partner with competing platform Dotopia to support the Wells Fargo employee workplace giving campaign which raised nearly $100 million annually. Brandon's responsibilities including managing site implementations, processing gift disbursements, and customer support.
Brandon continues to consult with nonprofits and businesses to strategically develop fundraising strategies using the newest giving technologies. Recently, Brandon helped launch the newest mobile giving platform in the market - Givio - a giving experience dedicated to putting the needs of donors first. And by doing just that, Givio is also enjoying adoption as a free workplace giving platform that any business can manage from a phone!
Brandon holds a B.A. in Business from Pacific Lutheran University, where he was a 4-year basketball standout. He has served on the boards of numerous community-based organizations, and has co-founded several charities. He resides in Tacoma, WA with his wife and family.
