About DonorPath:

DonorPath is a cutting-edge technology platform and professional community used to connect global nonprofits, experts and funders with new resources and best practices via software and a specially designed online virtual interaction model. The DonorPath mission is to provide every client with the simplicity, guidance, tools, resources and time to raise critical money that will fund its programs and support its fundraising goals.

What makes the DonorPath service unique:

As a member of the DonorPath expert community, you will receive hands-on training as well as technical support from the Network for Good - DonorPath staff. Once you complete the onboarding process, you can be matched with an organization through two proprietary methods.

(1) You can be identified as a high potential match based on your areas of fundraising expertise and then be selected by the client based on its specific agency needs; or

(2) You can refer new clients or service your personal clients on the DonorPath virtual platform (if you know of an organization(s) that would benefit from the product).

Both options provide a unique opportunity for fundraising professionals to develop a client portfolio and work schedule that complements their professional lifestyle, consulting philosophy and personal availability.
