With 9 combined years in sales and fundraising and 5 years of experience training fundraisers, Isaac believes that raising funds is about learning how to build trust that leads to long term partnerships with supporters.
Isaac began his career in philanthropy after working for 3 years in sales for a national medical service company. He was offered a position raising funds for a faith based organization that he deeply cared about, HOPE International. After spending 2 years as a major gift officer, Isaac was promoted to lead a team fundraisers spread geographically across the country. Isaac spent the next 5 years training and coaching as well as carrying a giving portfolio of his own. Isaac still serves at HOPE International as associate director, leading their fundraising team’s hiring, onboarding, and training efforts.
“Giving and receiving is good for the soul. The craft of encouraging generosity in others is one of the highest callings one can live out.”
Isaac believes in exchanging arm twisting for deep trust, and last-minute need-focused initiatives for long-term momentum-building campaigns.
