Thought provoking opinion piece from Antony Bugg-Levine, CEO of Nonprofit Finance Fund published in The Chronicle of Philanthropy.

"I’ve learned that standard practices on the money-giving side of philanthropy often impede effectiveness, stemming from the foundation world’s aversion to risk and persisting because of power dynamics that make it difficult for grant makers and grant seekers to learn from each other."

What additional questions would you pose?

This is why strategic thinking and planning can serve as a powerful moment to identify opportunities to strategically align or restructure with another organization."

Louisville Bar Association: "LBA Speaks"

Had a great time this morning speaking with Scott Furkin and the Louisville Bar Association about #nonprofit #Board #governance and tools to build a dynamic Board.

As an #attorney, I especially enjoy working with #nonprofits, #lawyers, #lawfirms, and associations on legal and fiduciary aspects of Board governance.
