Over 25 years in the nonprofit sector, Michael Brand has raised millions, given away millions and despite his best intentions, probably wasted a million along the way. He knows the nonprofit community well, having lived on both sides of the street first as a nonprofit leader then as a philanthropist. In addition to his grantmaker experience, he’s tackled every leadership role imaginable: Board Chair, Director, Fundraiser, Volunteer, Donor, Advisor. And he’s done it not just in the USA but Europe and Australia as well. Today, Michael infuses his speaking engagements, workshops, and coaching sessions with his passion for the role nonprofits play in creating a compassionate and civil society.
