About David Rhode
In 2005, David founded Pitch In For Baseball and Softball (PIFBS), a global best in class nonprofit organization that gives the gift of play and contributes to positive youth development by providing equipment to over 900,000 kids here in the U.S. and around the world. At PIFBS, David cultivated and grew strategic partnerships with Major League Baseball, Little League International, Wilson Sports Goods, Under Armour, and more than a dozen MLB teams.

David’s professional career began with blue chip Consumer Packaged Goods marketing experience with Procter & Gamble and H.J. Heinz. He then moved into a more entrepreneurial track running a multi-location automotive repair business in Philadelphia for 12 years.

David studied business and graduated Magna Cum Laude from Georgetown University. He furthered his education studying International Marketing at Brasenose College in Oxford and nonprofit fundraising at the University of Pennsylvania. He graduated with Honors with an MBA from The Wharton School.

David is an adjunct faculty member at the University of Pennsylvania instructing graduate students in Nonprofit Branding. He is married with 3 children and is an avid Philadelphia sports fan. He and his family now live in New York City where he completed his first New York City Marathon in 2019 before the pandemic shutdown.

After leaving Pitch In For Baseball and Softball late in 2019, David founded Dot Dot Org, a nonprofit consulting firm focusing on strategic challenges related to branding and fundraising as well as helping clients to navigate the challenges currently being faced due to Covid 19.
