Q&A with Vince Natale, Fundraising Sales Consultant
What do you do at Network for Good?
At Network for Good, I am a Fundraising Sales Consultant. I work with small and medium sized nonprofits to understand their needs and help determine if Network for Good is a good fit to streamline their fundraising efforts.
What is your experience with nonprofit organizations outside of Network for Good?
I started as the Fundraising Chair of the Junior Board for a local nonprofit called MentorPrize, which helps find and place mentors with different partner programs in the DC metro area. Now, I am Chair of the Junior Board!
What attracts you to nonprofits?
Nonprofits work hard to make their community better for everyone, not just those less fortunate or who don’t have a voice. It’s tough work but very admirable and rewarding!
What do you enjoy most about your work?
I like when people feel comfortable opening up and telling me about their problems and how I can solve them. Even if it’s giving minimal advice- its very rewarding.
What do you enjoy doing outside work?
In the Summer and Fall I like to get outside the cities and explore different areas of the DMV. My favorite thing is to find hidden gems and off-the-beaten-path places that tourists would not normally go!
