Meet the panelists

Renee Zau, DonationMatch

Renee is the CEO and Co-Founder of DonationMatch, a turnkey platform enabling brands and businesses to easily manage how their products and services are donated to qualified causes and social good events. DonationMatch was created as a direct result of Renee's frustrations when handling donation requests as both a silent auction chair and a multi-business owner seeking mutually beneficial partnerships in the community. Renee is a graduate and mentor of the Founder Institute startup accelerator program, was named a NAWBO San Diego Trailblazer and Woman Business Owner of the Year, and has helped produce Cause Conference San Diego (formerly AMA SD Cause Conference) for the last 8 years. She believes in win-win collaboration as a tool for success in both business and life.

Brian Lacy, NPOInfo

Brian Lacy is a data consultant for NPOInfo and principal of Brian Lacy and Associates, a fundraising and data services firm with more than 30 years of experience that provides leading industry resources and veteran talent to maximize opportunities across the giving spectrum.

From annual giving solutions to major and principal giving strategies, they have helped more than 400 non-profits raise more than $1 Billion in philanthropic support.

Sarah TeDesco, DonorSearch

Sarah is the Executive Vice President at DonorSearch. She has the opportunity to empower nonprofits, fundraisers, prospect researchers and other “do-gooders” with accurate and actionable insights which help them achieve their mission.
