Both Neil and Barbara are attracted to the venture philanthropy approach: especially SDSVP’s hands-on philosophy and focus on accountability. They also enjoy meeting like-minded people through SDSVP.
As the Fund Development Resource Team Chair, Barbara, along with several Partners, was effective in helping nonprofits such as Angels Foster Family Network. The Resource Team assisted the organization with writing grants and developing a fund-raising plan. Barbara is also involved with the Communications Working Group and wrote articles about SDSVP that were featured in the San Diego Business Journal and the San Diego Daily Transcript.
Neil and Barbara are serial entrepreneurs. Their latest venture, an Internet radio program on signonradio.com called I’m There for You Baby: The Entrepreneur’s Guide to the Galaxy, combines entertainment with education to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs. Check the archives for their interview with SDSVP’s own Alan Sorkin.
One of the highlights of their SDSVP membership is attending the annual meeting. Learning how SDSVP touches lives in our community makes Neil and Barb feel good about participating in such an effective organization.
