Congratulations to the Forum's President & CEO, David Biemesderfer and our member Phil Buchanan, The Center for Effective Philanthropy, for being named to the 2018 Nonprofit Times Power & Influence Top 50!
This year's list was selected from a group of roughly 300 top executives. A committee of NPT staff, contributors and a few executives plugged into executive movement were involved in the selection process. An executive must have had an impact during the previous 12 months. The honorees will be feted in Washington, D.C., next month during the annual NPT Power & Influence Top 50 Gala at The National Press Club.
From The Nonprofit Times
"Biemesderfer brought national and regional grantmakers and philanthropy-serving organizations into an alliance. He has re-visioned grantmakers’ education and expanded the network to include impact groups with knowledge in specific areas of expertise, such as a particular funding issue, population group or practice."
"Buchanan continues to ask the tough questions of foundation leaders, most recently showing a disconnect between what is possible and what is actually happening. Via his in-your-face style, he points out the shallow knowledge of funding areas and lack of collaboration that foundation leaders often refuse to acknowledge"
