Ep 26 – Merton Capital Partners

Does your nonprofit have a detailed growth plan? Are you a philanthropist looking to deploy large gifts? This episode is for you! While most nonprofits have a strategic plan – it isn’t necessarily strategic and it may not have many numbers, so it’s not a plan by most for-profit standards. Today, on #GIVEPodcast , Sean Davis of Merton Capital Partners teaches us about the secret to unlocking millions of dollars in un-donated funds, scoring Big Bets, and the importance of detailed long-term growth planning.
