The Business of Philanthropy: “Exit Interviews” with Former and Departing Foundation CEOs

Thursday, June 30, 2011

How has the increasing influence of business techniques affected the world of philanthropy? Can corporate tools effectively measure success at foundations and nonprofits? This was one of the topics explored at our recent Thought Leaders program featuring Susan Berresford, former President and CEO of the Ford Foundation; Christine DeVita, President of The Wallace Foundation; and Lance Lindblom, President and CEO of the Nathan Cummings Foundation. We’re pleased to have the moderator at that program, Richard Smith, President of The Pinkerton Foundation, share his thoughts with us.
