Silence: The Impending Threat to the Charitable Sector is a high-stake and explosive investigative work about charity misdeeds. As you read this cover, there is a noteworthy charity fraud being perpetrated.

Scandals threaten to destroy the reputation of the charitable sector. These scandals threaten to destroy the reputation of powerful organizations and their leaders.

Charity malfeasance is an addiction of epic proportions. Charity leaders and regulators, by their silence and denial, are enablers.

Because the misdeeds were kept secret, there was no public outcry. The secrets are now being exposed. The sector needs a new paradigm, and Silence makes numerous suggestions as to how to turn it around.

This exposé is based on the largest repository of charity fraud anywhere. Many trusted leaders are exposed including board members, presidents, superintendents, chief executive officers, accountants— and more. They embezzled, forged, extorted, and falsified records; they self-dealt, negligently managed assets, and had multiple conflicts of interest.

About the Author:

Born in 1930 in San Francisco, Gary Snyder grew up in the rural Pacific Northwest. He graduated from Reed College in 1951 with degrees in anthropology and literature, and later, 1953 56, studied Japanese and Chinese civilization at Berkeley, returning there to teach in the English Department. Throughout these years, Gary Snyder worked at various outdoor jobs as a seaman, as a lookout in Mt. Baker National Forest, as a choker setter for a logging company, on a trail crew at Yosemite National Park. These experiences are integrally reflected in such works asRiprapandMyths and Texts. As he has remarked, "I ve come to realize that the rhythms of my poems follow the rhythm of the physical work I m doing and the life I m leading at any given time which makes the music in my head which creates the line." After participating in the San Francisco revival, the beginning of the beat poetry movement, with Ginsberg, Whalen, Rexroth and McClure, Snyder quietly went off to Japan in 1955 where he stayed for eighteen months, living in a Zen monastery. In 1958, he joined the tanker "Sappa Creek" and traveled around the world. In early 1959 he again returned to Japan where, apart from six months in India, he studied Kyoto under Oda Sesso Roshi, the Zen master and Head Abbot of Daitoku-Ji. He has spent further time (1966 67) in Japan on a Bollingen research grant. In 1969 he received a Guggenheim grant and toured the Southwestern United States visiting various Indian tribes.

Review:

Silence...exposes the grossly unethical practices of thousands of people in the nonprofit world. 
-- Ken Berger President /CEO, Charity Navigator
 
Gary Snyder provides important advice and guidelines that can improve the charitable sector.
--Bob Edgar President of Common Cause, former US congressman
 

In Silence, Snyder issues an important wake-up call to leaders of the charitable sector. He reminds us that we have a responsibility to be better stewards of the public trust.”
--Aaron Dorfman Executive Director, National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy

In Silence, you will see that that the charitable sector has underestimated its problems and overestimated the skills and interest to address and repair them.“
--Sherece West President and CEO, Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation
