Nonprofits & Java

Nonprofits & Java

My name is Bryce Lord. One aspect of my job I love the most is sitting down in a coffee shop with colleagues and friends to discuss the goings-on in the nonprofit sector and learn more about the community around us. What makes this special is hearing about the passion that leads people to the work they do, the people they serve, and the communities around them. Nonprofits and Java is a podcast about nonprofits, coffee...and passion.
