His 35 years as a real estate professional and his commitment to helping non-profits led Jack to the My Broker Donates concept. He’s a licensed California real estate broker (BRE #00470025) who served as managing broker for two successful Marin County, CA start-ups. For many years, he was responsible for locating housing when UCSF Medical Center recruited top administrators and key research people. His deep experience at the junction of real estate and the Web also resulted in the creation of seven successful lead-generation portals in California, Nevada and Hawaii. He served as a director for six years at the California Association of Realtors® and seven years at the Marin Association of Realtors®, with one year as president (2005), as well as two years as director at Marin Workforce housing Trust. The idea for My Broker Donates crystallized for Jack after he successfully negotiated real estate transactions for non-profit clients and followed his instinct to help them even more. Along the way, he raised $150,000 for the Marin Workforce Housing Trust, and donated over $25,000 to EAH Housing of California and Hawaii. Now Jack is dedicated to changing the world, starting with the way non-profits raise money.
Tom has been a non-profit junkie most of his life—as a volunteer, pro bono consultant, advisor, coach and board member. He took his sector commitment to a new level after reading Peter Drucker—“What the dawning twenty-first century needs above all is an equally explosive growth of the nonprofit social sector organizations…”. He brings to the sector his 30 years of experience in Organization Assessment & Development, Human Capital Management and Executive Coaching, having spent 17 years as an owner, business leader and consultant with Hewitt Associates. Through his work with the Taproot Foundation he’s helping to bring human resources to the non-profit sector and through My Broker Donates, the financial resources the sector needs. Tom’s career path has been informed and supported by his M.S. in Organization Dynamics from the University of Pennsylvania and B.A. in Business and Psychology.
