Darian Rodriguez Heyman (San Francisco, CA) has been working to enable nonprofit leaders for over a decade. For the past five years, he served as Executive Director of Craigslist Foundation, where he was instrumental in conceiving, executing and promoting its acclaimed Nonprofit Boot Camp conference series. Over 10,000 graduates attended the program during Heyman’s tenure, and approval ratings never dipped below 93%. Heyman developed Boot Camp into the largest nonprofit gathering in the San Francisco Bay Area and it has held that honor for four years running. He also successfully expanded the program into New York City, and he has served as MC for every conference to date, building his name as a public speaker and a central figure in the sector. Heyman’s collaborative approach to producing nonprofit conferences is unique, in that he recruited over 200 local nonprofit capacity building and technical assistance organizations to plan the content and promote the conferences. This is partly why the Boot Camps have featured some of the most respected experts in the field as presenters, many of whom will be recruited as authors for the book.
Heyman has moved on from Craigslist Foundation and continues to keynote and speak at major conferences around the country (i.e. Independent Sector, BoardSource, NTEN, Grantmakers for Effective Organizations/GEO, Nonprofit Congress, CompassPoint’s Nonprofit Day, and various state associations of nonprofits). The media also frequently taps him for his insight, and his comments have appeared in the New York Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, and the Chronicle of Philanthropy. For his work in the field, Independent Sector has gone as far as labeling him a "Vital Voice" in their 2007 Annual Report. Heyman has also been appointed as a Commissioner for the Environment in the City and County of San Francisco by Mayor Gavin Newsom, and as a Senior Advisor to the United Nations’ Global Alliance for ICT and Development, further establishing his credibility.
