It’s still early in 2019, but we already know that one of the most significant developments in the world of philanthropy for this year will be the merger of the two largest data and information nonprofit organizations, the Foundation Center and GuideStar. Here to discuss this with us is Brad Smith, the former head of the Foundation Center, and now the CEO of this new entity which is called Candid.
The rate of change is increasing in every field of endeavor, including philanthropy. And in order to be a true leader in the field, a person can’t be 100% consumed with just the well-being and state of their own organization; one also must leave some space and time to contemplate what all these changes mean for the entire sector. One individual that fits that description perfectly is my next guest… He is Bradford K. Smith, the President and CEO of the Foundation Center.
