Team: About

Dave Manning

Nonprofit Organizational Development Consultant

I believe Viktor Frankl was right: our "search for meaning" is the primary motivation in life (not pleasure, not power)- meaning matters most.

It's why I help nonprofits reach their potential with purpose.


By helping nonprofits grow their meaningful communities, workplaces, and brands, I hope to solve problems that matter, leave the world better than I found it, and bring meaning to daily life for lots of people.

A proud expert-generalist, my versatile background draws from careers in both the for-profit and nonprofit sectors, spanning finance, research, operations management, culture change, organizational transformation, leadership development, and more.

I do my best work with curious, lighthearted (mission work is too heavy not to bring a sense of humor with us), low-ego individuals with growth mindsets ready to challenge the status quo. If you think we might be a good fit, I hope you'll reach out!
