Author & Founder

Jordan Patrick

In the nonprofit world, we're often told that certain rules are inviolable. We're conditioned to think that because our currency is change, not profit, the same aggressive strategies that transform industries don't apply to us. We're led to believe that passion will fill the gaps where pragmatic tactics should be.

This book challenges those preconceptions. It's built on the premise that nonprofits can learn a great deal from startup culture. This isn't about rejecting the ethos of nonprofit work; it's about refining it, injecting a dose of realism, and preparing your organization to make a lasting impact.

Thank You


To the thousands of nonprofits and the professionals who breathe life into them, you are the unsung heroes of our time. Your stories have been the ink in my pen, and your challenges and triumphs have shaped these pages. Your resilience, creativity, and unwavering commitment to service have not only inspired me, but have also been a beacon of hope in a world that often seems to need it most. I am deeply grateful for the knowledge shared, the inspiration given, and the support extended over the past decade.  

To my parents, Berry and Judi Patrick, words seem a modest vessel to contain my gratitude. You have been the architects of my foundation, crafting it with love, support, and the kind of wisdom that only parents can provide. Without your guidance, the path of my life would be drastically different, and this book would remain unwritten.  

Charlotte Gwynn, your belief in me has been both a comfort and a catalyst. You've been a constant in the tumult of ups and downs this year. Without you, this book would not have been possible.  Thank you for all that you do for both me and everyone you come in contact with.  

A fraternal salute to my brothers—Jacob, Justin, and Joseph Patrick. Our shared experiences are the threads from which I’ve woven my passion and my character. You have all, in your own unique ways, contributed to the person I have become, and for that, I am forever thankful.  

Finally, I dedicate this book to my late grandfather, Dr. David Aronson. His life was a testament to the power of passion and dedication. Papa, you instilled in me the values of hard work and integrity, and your support for my career and my passions knew no bounds. Your legacy is etched not only in these pages but in the very fabric of who I am.  

This book, much like the mission of every nonprofit it seeks to serve, is about hope, action, and the ripple effect of good deeds. May it honor the memory of my grandfather and the collective work of the many who strive to make a difference each day.

With the utmost gratitude,
Jordan Patrick
