Nau Supports Kiva!
Nau, a natural clothing company and Kiva supporter, had a promotional party last week in New York City. Two Kiva Fellows attended the event, held at PR firm Mfa, and got to see firsthand how Kiva camaraderie can inspire a workplace.

Kiva is one of five partner organizations supported by Nau through their Partners for Change program. Nau donates 2% of each sale to the organization of the client's choice in order to change the landscape of corporate philanthropy. 

Last year, that support added up to over $45,000!

JD is responsible for ensuring that Kiva maintains and grows its core commitment to the disadvantaged beneficiary of its internet platform. He leads the development and execution of Kiva's social performance strategy, which entails measuring, providing judgment on and communicating the social performance of Kiva's operations including its MFI Field Partners and new product initiatives. After growing the Kiva Fellows Program into a critical contributor to Kiva's success and one of the largest and most sought after networks of microfinance volunteers in the world, he gladly accepted the challenge of developing the social performance practice at Kiva. JD brings over fourteen years of leadership and program development experience both in the corporate and not-for-profit sectors. Prior to Kiva, he built robust systems to achieve $3M as Director of Resource Development at ACCION International, served with the U.S. Peace Corps in a poor, rural region of Bulgaria, and held senior roles at a variety of early stage companies during periods of rapid growth. JD holds a BA in Russian Language and Comparative Literature from Washington University in Saint Louis.
