Will Schneider joined Slingshot in 2009, and is now the group’s executive director. Previously, he worked as a fundraising consultant for dozens of nonprofit clients across several sectors—the Apollo Theater, the Joe Torre Safe at Home Foundation, and the National Urban League, to name a few.
While consulting, he also founded and developed a community and professional network for young professional fundraisers called The Future Leaders in Philanthropy (FLiP). In approximately two years, the FLiP community grew rapidly to over 3000 people—and now it continues to grow under new leadership. Prior to consulting, Will worked on the major gifts team at Carnegie Hall, and before that in the development office at New York University.
