The rise of a new generation of philanthropists has infused NGOs, charities and foundations with new resources and possibilities. But before those possibilities can be realized, gaps must be bridged. What might seem obvious to a large donor in Silicon Valley may be much more complicated to an on-the-ground program director in Africa. Creating a mutual understanding between organizations and donors is just one part of what makes a great nonprofit leader.
At Egon Zehnder, our NGOs, Charities and Foundations Practice helps you find and develop leaders who can speak the language of both business and mission, and who also have the management abilities needed to handle the ever-increasing demands of transparency, efficiency, and performance. Because we collaborate closely with our colleagues in industry practices around the world, we are able to broaden the talent pool to include not only seasoned nonprofit leaders but private sector executives who embrace the organization’s goals.
