Prior to joining DSA, Wetherbee proved to be instrumental in helping nonprofit clients – including Insight for Living, Wycliffe Bible Translators, Moody Bible Institute, Dallas Theological Seminary, and others – raise more than $500 million.

“I am deeply committed to share the mission of every client I serve, standing beside them to achieve the fundraising goals needed to do their important, life-changing work,” said Wetherbee. “It is my great privilege to join Douglas Shaw and Associates in providing innovative and effective fundraising services. I look forward to continuing a wonderful legacy of partnership with the clients we serve, as well as an exciting future together.”
