In 2005, Saul Rosenblum, took his first step into a healthy, active lifestyle and didn’t stop until he had completed the NYC Marathon. Along the way, he sparked a grassroots fundraising campaign for a food pantry and raised more than $40,000 in less than three weeks–without a website or software. Saul was hooked on the concept of using healthy activity to raise funds for charity. Energized, Saul co-founded a not-for-profit organization that paired healthy activities with charitable fundraising and raised over $600,000 for causes in less than three years. Pained by the facts that smaller organizations were at a disadvantage in the peer-to-peer world, and that larger organizations were forced to invest so much time and effort into events that their staff and fundraising suffered, Saul conceived The Generosity Series: a multi-charity peer to peer platform that removes the heavy lifting, risk, and expense that typically accompany Run/Walk events so that charities can do more with less and raise and retain more money for mission. . Now with events in nine locations (and growing!) The Generosity Series has empowered more than 100 Charity Partners to raise over seven and a half million dollars.
Generosity’s Core values:
Engage in something meaningful to enrich lives.
Approach Challenges with unstoppable innovation.
Combine openmindedness with optimism to make things work.
Be relentless in your efforts to meet the needs & reinforce the strengths of communities.
Saul combined his experiences as an all-star peer-to-peer fundraiser, a nonprofit founder & board member, and a successful entrepreneur to launch the Generosity Series. An expert builder, Saul enjoys dreaming up how to make every event better than the last. Read his full story above.
