By: Vanderbloemen August 20, 2019
From the Vanderbloemen Leadership Podcast, we’re excited to bring you our one-on-one series with Christian leaders to share their insights on a variety of leadership topics, all through the lens of faith.
Today, Holly talks with Rick Dunham, CEO of Dunham and Company. They discuss topics such as the Giving Institute, the ways that Dunham and Company changes lives in the Christian world, and the importance of giving in the local church. Rick and Holly unpack the new Giving USA Report which is full of data about giving trends, religion, education, and nonprofit institutions.
Rick first served nonprofits through fundraising and organizational development nearly 40 years ago. He worked in nonprofit management and leadership for more than a decade before using his passion and expertise as a consultant. All of this culminated with the founding of Dunham+Company in 2002.
Since then, Rick has led Dunham+Company to become a global leader in helping nonprofits create and execute fully integrated fundraising and marketing strategies. With dozens of clients on four continents, Dunham+Company now has the opportunity to share their skills with the top organizations around the world.
Rick holds a BA from Biola University and a ThM from Dallas Theological Seminary. He currently serves on the board of The Giving Institute and is Chair of the Board of the Giving USA Foundation, the publisher of the most widely respected report on giving in the USA. Rick also advocates for charitable organizations through his work with The Giving Coalition.
