What International Philanthropy Can Do- an interview with David Bonbright on Uncommon Giving

The Rock the World Network is a community of uncommon givers. The Uncommon Giving show features the leaders of charities, foundations and corporations rocking our world.

This episode is #45 of all time in the top 50 shows on Solutionz Live!

David Bonbright is founder and Chief Executive of Keystone, who's mission is to improve the effectiveness of social purpose organizations.

Over the past three decades, as a grantmaker and manager with Aga Khan Foundation, Ford Foundation, Oak Foundation, and Ashoka, David has sought to evolve and test innovative approaches to strengthening citizen self-organization for sustainable development as an alternative to prevailing bureaucratic, top-down models of social service delivery and social value creation.

While with the Ford Foundation, he was declared persona non grata by the apartheid government in South Africa. In 1990 he returned to South Africa and entrepreneured the development of key building blocks for civil society, including the first nonprofit internet service provider, the national association of NGOs, the national association of grantmakers, and enabling reforms to the regulatory and tax framework for not-for-profit organisations that were among the first laws passed by the newly elected Mandela government.

  They work with them to develop better ways of planning, measuring and reporting social change.
Their analysis provides an in-depth description of the difficulties social organizations face in measuring and reporting their impact.
