My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Center for Leadership Initiatives, Vancouver, --, Canada
The CLI runs terrific programs in general and in specific, their ROI program is absolutely transformational. The vision of the Schusterman Center to invest in the "twenty-something" space puts them way way ahead of any Jewish organization on the planet as no one else is really looking globally at the next generation. In a world dominated by 20th century federation thinking, we are all at risk from a system that essentially in only interested in chopping down trees (fundraising from current donors) rather than the seedlings that must be planted for every tree cut down. We all agree that the environment should not be treated this way, and yet we are doing this to our own communities. The CLI is leading the way in creating the kinds of program and opportunities for idea exchanges that makes them not only innovators, but highly effective ones at that.
