Planned Giving Specialist
Inspiration: “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” — Mahatma Gandhi
What working in this community means to me: “I’m proud to call the Twin Cities home. We need to ensure that the prosperity of this special community benefits all our neighbors, especially caring for those who need a helping hand.”
Nathan oversees the planned giving program at Greater Twin Cities United Way, where he helps generous donors and volunteers leave a legacy and/or make endowment gifts for long-range impact. He assists donors sorting through options to give financially through their estates, investments, insurance and retirement accounts, and other assets in ways that produce meaningful impact. Nathan also aims to advise and assist in gift plans that are tax-savvy and centered on the donor’s circumstances. He has worked at Greater Twin Cities United Way for three years.
Prior to joining the organization, Nathan led planned giving philanthropy programs for 12 years. His previous professional role was at Children’s Minnesota and he has also worked in higher education. Before entering the nonprofit world, Nathan was an estate planning attorney at the firm of Fredrikson & Byron in Minneapolis. He graduated from Northwestern University School of Law and the University of Minnesota.
Nathan and his wife are raising their two boys in Golden Valley. Outside of work he enjoys going to his kids’ sporting events, canoeing, swimming, reading and traveling. Nathan is also an active volunteer in his kids’ school district, the Bell Museum and Planetarium, and the local YWCA.
