Welcome back to The NonProfit Voice Podcast! In this episode, Nhu Te, editor-in-chief of NonProfit PRO, sits down with David Orrick, founder and executive director of DIBS for Kids, and Madeline Duva, CEO of Fluxx, to look into grants management and how technology can play a key role.
David is an Omaha-native and a vocal advocate for Omaha’s public school teachers. He is adamant that schools must rethink the way they support teachers. This stems from his experience as a first grade teacher, where he served as a founding teacher of ARISE Academy charter school. David has experience helping launch and grow multiple other education reform organizations.
Since 2014 he has worked with the consulting firm FourPoint Education Partners to help Omaha Public Schools usher in two of its highest profile strategic initiatives. David was a Finalist for Tulane’s 2010 Urban Innovation Challenge and was named a Distinguished Educator by Turning Technologies. He holds a BSD in Architecture from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
Madeline is CEO of Fluxx, where she drives strategy and mission to elevate the company as a leader in the philanthropic ecosystem. As a strategic advisor, investor and board member to numerous successful software and internet companies, Madeline has always been deeply inspired by and passionate about mission-driven enterprises and is thrilled to be working with Fluxx to power the philanthropic sector.
In her time in Silicon Valley, she’s held chairman, advisor and director roles at a host of companies including PenOp, Dejima, Revere Data, China MobileSoft and PalmSource. After the successful acquisition by PalmSource of China MobileSoft, where Duva was CEO, she served as a mentor, advisor and/or board member of several startups.
