Discovering, Nurturing, and Building Stronger Relationships
Lisa Munter is the founder of Knitt; an organization that creates partnerships between businesses with nonprofits that seek funding for their causes in the communities they serve. Knitt accomplishes this by empowering the discovery, nurturing, and building of relationships between nonprofits and businesses based on common values, beliefs, and an overarching mission to give back.
As an active Saratogian for more than 20 years, Lisa has established relationships with various businesses, giving her valued insight of their annual goals and missions around their giving programs. During this time, she began working alongside numerous nonprofit organizations. She experienced firsthand the difficulties and challenges facing nonprofits as they seek out new donors and balance this with the reality of limited resources. Lisa’s passion and knowledge quickly transformed to results – raising awareness for nonprofits causes, making valued connections with business owners and community members, all with the optimism of making a direct impact on the community.
This background led Lisa to create Knitt, a social networking-based platform, that is intended to help all communities, states, and even countries break down the barriers and facilitate change for good. What makes Knitt unique is its inherent design to help both donors and nonprofits along their journey together.
A natural when it comes to helping others, Lisa currently serves as Board President for The Dake Foundation for Children, and you will often find her volunteering her time to various local nonprofits. Lisa currently resides in Upstate New York with her husband, two sons, and several farm animals.
