Founder of DB Consulting, Danielle Berman

If you are an athlete looking to make a greater impact in your community, it’s important to utilize the resources and skills you already have and partner with those who can help. Danielle Berman has dedicated her career to helping others and is passionate about educating athletes and nonprofits on the best ways to work together to create social impact.

Rather than recreating the wheel or competing against likeminded initiatives, she aims to encourage athletes and nonprofits to work together and bridge the gap between sports and philanthropy to create sustainable community impact.

She founded DB Consulting to put her knowledge and experience to good use guiding professional athletes and organizations who want to make an impact in the community. After recognizing there were missed opportunities occurring in the philanthropy world, she dedicated her work to creating and managing relationships between athletes and nonprofits to further community impact. She aims to ensure that the projects athletes take on in the community are sustainable and truly impactful.

Danielle launched the Big League Philanthropist podcast to highlight the work that professional athletes are doing to make the world a better place. The podcast aims to share the athlete’s inspiration for making an impact and why they are passionate about the causes they support.

Danielle also works to provide athletes of all ages, sports and circumstance the opportunity to focus on what’s next in life after sports through the Tackle What’s Next Summit series. She founded the Tackle What’s Next movement with the goal of providing athletes with a safe space to discuss the challenges of transition out of sport as well as share resources that can help.

Danielle graduated from Syracuse University with a degree in Sports Management and a minor in Public Communications. She earned her Sports Philanthropy Certificate from George Washington University.
