Founder and principal of Sea Change Strategies

Mark RovnerMark Rovner is the founder and principal at Sea Change Strategies, a research and fundraising practice serving charities and nonprofits. He’s also the proud owner of a 15-year-old rescued mutt named Daffodil.

A frequent writer, speaker and blogger, Mark is one of the pioneers of using the Internet for fundraising, organizing and strategic communications. Over the past 10 years, he has led fundraising, integrated communications and marketing efforts on behalf of a host of organizations, including World Wildlife Fund, Amnesty International, Southern Poverty Law Center, the ACLU, the Christopher Reeve Foundation and the National Audubon Society. 

In his best-selling book Tribes, Seth Godin called Mark a “fundraising heretic” and a leader in the field of nonprofit communications. Mark’s short essay “Timeless” appears in a 2009 Seth Godin e-book compilation of thought leaders in public communications.

As part of his mid-life crisis, Mark took up scuba diving, and it’s hard to get him off the subject. He has a law degree from Georgetown University, though he is thrilled not to be practicing law. He completed a certificate in feature film screenwriting from UCLA Extension in 2010.
