Saving Philanthropy Releases Preview

Saving Philanthropy, a documentary film exploring the strategies associated with effective philanthropy and high-performing organizations, has just released a preview. Some of the most well known and respected philanthropic organizations and thought leaders are participating in the film, including Charity Navigator's own president & CEO, Ken Berger. Others include: Jane Wales, Director of The Aspen Institute's Program on Philanthropy, Paul Brest, President of the Hewlett Foundation, Kat Rosqueta, Founder of the Center for High Impact Philanthropy at Penn, and David Hunter, former Director of Evaluation at The Edna McConnell Clark Foundation.

In this short clip we hear about Nurse-Family Partnership, an organization Charity Navigator has heralded for getting it right when it comes to financial health and accountability/transparency. Saving Philanthropy highlights Nurse-Family Partnership for its ability to show impacts for two generations.

The clip wraps up with a plea for donors to demand that their charities track and report on outcomes. As you may know, one of Charity Navigator's primary goals is to help deliver this data to our users. Find out how you can help us reach that goal.
