DongorsChoose.org CEO Charles Best delivers the keynote at the Future of Jewish Nonprofit Summit.
The Future of Jewish Nonprofit Summit pulls together the best speakers, ideas and companies together for one day in order to inspire movement, facilitate change and spark creativity.
This one day summit is a polar opposite to your typical overcrowded, loud and ineffective conference. We keep it to a closed circle of in-the-know attendees and provide them with a casual, content-rich and personal environment. Our objective is to cultivate substantive and concrete dialogue between a select group of decision makers and help make things happen.
Charles Best leads DonorsChoose.org, a nonprofit organization which provides a simple way to address educational inequity. At DonorsChoose.org, public school teachers create classroom project requests and donors can pick the projects they want to support. Charles launched the organization twelve years ago out of a Bronx public high school where he taught history. DonorsChoose.org is one of Oprah Winfrey's "ultimate favorite things" and was named by Fast Company as one of the "50 Most Innovative Companies in the World," the first time a charity has received this recognition. For three years, Fortune Magazine has named Charles to its "40 under 40 hottest rising stars in business."
