Alice helps nonprofit organizations find creative, people-oriented solutions to complex strategy and technology problems.

In her 15+ years working with mission-driven organizations, she has provided executive coaching, organization development, process design, and staffing strategy to nonprofit leaders across the sector. Alice is an expert in cause marketing, online fundraising, political engagement, website strategy, social and mobile media, marketing automation, and brand empowerment. But her particular gift lies in identifying the emotional intelligence and wisdom within nonprofits and offering a holistic approach to making organizational change.

After years of helping nonprofits as VP of Client Service at Get Active and Managing Partner at Kintera, Alice co-founded Jackson River back in 2008 out of the belief that the nonprofit sector deserves access to powerful, corporate-scale technologies. By the numbers, she counts 15+ years working exclusively with nonprofits; 100+ causes assisted; and too many RFP processes to count.

Alice’s expertise lies in the application of emerging digital technology for nonprofits. As CEO of Jackson River, Alice oversees client engagements, new business development, and occasionally takes on consulting projects to lead nonprofits in building effective digital teams.

Farewell, 2017: A Year in Review

I’m generally motivated to write a blog post at the end of the year as I head into retrospective mode, getting all mushy and lovey-dovey about Jackson River.

You have to focus on building a culture. You hire well, you create mini-teams so everyone is working deeply and collaboratively with each other, you use video chat and a lot of Slack, and you be as honest and transparent as you can. I tell people to bring their whole selves to work. I don’t really buy into this work/life balance concept so much, because you work as part of your life, your life includes your work. You want to be able to all the things you do: you’re writing code, you’re on client calls, you’re driving to soccer practice, you’re getting dinner on the table, you’re walking the dog – all of those you want to do well and fully and authentically.

How Can We Help?

We’d like to catalyze support for your cause.
