Sean Triner

Co-Founder of Moceanic and Pareto Group

After nearly three decades in the nonprofit trenches, I was struck by a big idea. Smart fundraisers like you need a safety net… a super-charged support system… a path out of the fundraising wilderness. So I co-founded Moceanic to connect smart fundraisers with the best fundraising training and experts on the planet. Life-changing fundraising success awaits. Are you ready for that crucial next step in your journey?

Community Coordinator

I love making connections. I love connecting people to causes they care about. I love connecting fundraisers with each other. And with brilliant fundraising.

Fundraising is the only job I’ve known, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. What a privilege it is for you and me to spend our days working towards making the world a better place.

The fundraisers I work with tell me they appreciate my practical advice and my hands-on approach. I’ve been happily busy developing fundraising programs for longer than I care to remember. (OK, it’s 20 years now!) I love data and I love helping fundraisers like you use their data to better understand, respect and love their donors.

I’ve been active in fundraising for nearly 30 years, and LOVE YOUR DONORS is the most important thing I know about fundraising. Nonprofits that love their donors — and demonstrate their love through concrete action — raise a lot more money. They find more donors. Those donors give them more. And stay with them longer.
