On the eve of its second anniversary, Baltimore-based startup GiveCorps has added Vince Talbert as CEO. E-commerce expert and co-founder of tech-giant Bill Me Later, Talbert was instrumental in its $1B sale to PayPal in 2008. He brings unmatched e-commerce expertise to the higher education-focused giving platform.
Over recent decades, higher education institutions nationwide have struggled to maintain alumni giving, with participation falling from 20% during the 1980’s to 9%* today. GiveCorps is positioned to move higher education beyond crowdfunding with a cloud-based giving platform that allows colleges and universities to match donor passions with real funding needs for the first time.
“Fifteen years ago, technology began changing the way we shop, communicate and live. Philanthropy is now at the cusp of a technological transformation and I wanted to partner with one of the best minds in e-commerce to propel our mission,” said Jamie McDonald, Founder and President of GiveCorps. “Vince is the ideal choice for CEO. His deep experience building high growth consumer and enterprise networks, paired with our first-hand knowledge of fundraising and evolving donor needs will be instrumental in guiding GiveCorps’ expansion.”
