Who’s Who

If you want to see who’s who in the world of nonprofits, check out the NonProfit Times’ Power and Influence Top 50. They call the listed individuals “executives who mobilize the masses for good and who manage their resources while blazing a path for others to follow.” Some of the choices, such as Bill Gates, Independent Sector President Diana Aviv, or Wendy Kopp of Teach for America, are well known within and beyond the nonprofit world. Others have been less visible, but nevertheless influential. There’s Alan Khazei, Founder and CEO of Be the Change, who the list notes is “the primary reason that national service is front and center in the Obama administration.” I was intrigued by Holly Ross, Executive Director of NTEN in Portland, Oregon, who is cited as “ringmaster of perhaps the most undisciplined circus of geeks with great ideas on building constituencies” and developing the “next generation of nonprofit technology.” And I was pleased to see former client Stephen Heintz, President of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, who is lauded as “one of the few who really understands that … increasing global interdependence explains why U.S. philanthropy is a primary source of risk capital for social change.”
