Episode 63: Patricia Glaser Shea of Givful

“We tightly bind a company, its employees and the nonprofits they support together through ongoing communication and sharing of stories.”

Patricia Glasier Shea has experienced many sectors of business, having spent 17 years in corporate America and 17 more in nonprofit leadership.

Drawing from her wide-range of experience, Pat shares insights into the many benefits of Givful, including how tracking all giving and volunteering information in one place can make donating easy and enjoyable for all parties involved.
