Meet the Founder: Phil Dearing

When I was graduating college, I knew that I wanted to commit my career to social impact, but I only applied to one nonprofit job. Why? Because I was terrified of getting stuck in a dead-end, low-paying job that would not develop my skills or allow me to live into my ambition. I had no mentors at school or resources online that could help me differentiate the promising opportunities from more challenging ones. Fortunately for me, I landed a job at the nonprofit I applied to, Bridgespan.


Over the last three years, I have seen the impact of limited talent pipelines first hand. Employees at many nonprofits are stressed about making payroll and continuing to provide the programs they offer. They often don’t have the resources or support to think boldly about what it would take to truly make a change. And so, we’re putting our hope in an initial wave of creative, ambitious, and committed young professionals that aren’t satisfied with the status quo. We want to help you find a way to engage with your passions full time and to start taking on some of the challenges that our generation must face.
