My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Barack H Obama Foundation, Arlington, VA, USA
I have been looking into and reading about this foundation. It has no direct link to the President Barack H. Obama, it does have a direct link to his brother and father. Having experience with dealing with non-profits with roots going back to Kenya, beware, unless you have directly verifiable administrators on the ground, non-profits and orphanages in Kenya are very unfortunately, big business. I see very prominently the request for funds by this foundation, but no data to support what they are doing other than a boilerplate write up.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Full transparency with independent third party oversight to add credibility. Qualitative and quantitative data to show the results of the work they are say they are doing. Financials should be on their website, this has to do with full transparency.
