My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for International Planned Parenthood Federation/Western Hemisphere Region, New York, NY, USA
I've been involved in helping to support a clinic that IPPF/WHR funded in Haiti. The Board was strategic in both making the grant and helping the organization on the ground to think about fundraising for the future.
In additition, the organization has great leadership. The executive director is a seasoned leader and she has recruited an excellent team.
IPPF/WHR is values driven and action oriented. Not afraid to take tough stands, to bring young people into the governance of the organization, and when need be, to kick out clinics that are doing their jobs.

I've learned a lot from IPPF. As a director of another nonprofit, I use my service on IPPF as professional training.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Add more training on diversity and fundraising for the member associations in Latin America. Also help Boards to establish term limits so that new blood has a chance at governance.
