Celebrating a Hero: Lance Lindblom wins an award

Last month, Lance Lindblom was awarded Common Cause New York's Democracy In Action award.  He's one of the few true leaders in responsible ownership.  In 2012 he retired after more than a decade at the Nathan Cummings Foundation.  Before that, while at the Ford Foundation, he focused on democratic accountability and economic and social policy.  He was one of the few people in the foundation world that I can point to as a leader who really worked to make foundations be responsible owners.  Thank you, Lance.

I totally agree -- Lance was ahead of most others on responsible ownership, and continued to pave the way. We need to keep at it, as endowments (not just foundations, but all institutional investors that are tax exempt, and there are a lot of them) are the laggards in this.

Thanks for posting!!
