Using Story To Deepen Donor Relationships


Javan Van Gronigen joins Gabe Cooper to talk about the power of story to bridge the gap between givers and the good you’re making in our world, the importance of pivoting to think of donor cultivation less like a funnel and more like a network, and more.

Javan is the Founder and Creative Director at Fifty & Fifty. When not directing the path of his creative team, he’s driving strategy to roll out new solutions for the nonprofit world through web design. With previous professional experience as the Art Director for companies like Digitaria and Invisible Children, he founded Fifty & Fifty in 2009 to put nonprofit web design and branding on the same playing field as Fortune 500 brands.

Javan and his wife Candice have sons named Sebastian and Graeme along with a brindle Boxer named Brutus…who is inadvertently (or advertently) the office mascot.
