Description

Howdy, Zengineers!

This week we're chatting with Nat Wyeth, professional fundraiser, old friend, and all around good guy. We talk about his experience working with small, medium, and large donors over the last decade of fundraising for some exceptional non-profit organizations. Nat shares interesting insights into how the world of fundraising works, how it affects organizations at large, and how you can get involved, making smart decisions with your own gifts.

We hope you enjoy the convo.
