I recently spoke in Chicago before the Feeding America annual conference. Feeding America is the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity, with more than 200 member food banks serving all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Joining me to talk about the importance of transparency and accountability in our demanding world were Art Taylor from the BBB Wise Giving Alliance and Ken Berger of Charity Navigator. The local member food bank staffers were attentive and truly concerned about providing the appropriate data to meet donor expectations. By the way, unlike many nonprofit organizations, the food banks unanimously told me that their fundraising is up so far this year. That’s good to hear.
