Foundation accountability needed

To the editor,

Thank God for persons like Rick Cohen [“Foundations falling short,” 1/8/07] with the moral courage to speak the truth about how big, wealthy foundations are virtually unregulated by the public.

Thanks also to the Philanthropy Journal for publishing voices like that of Mr. Cohen.

He articulates so well what so many of us in the nonprofit sector have felt for so long.

If more of us were to unite and speak out, perhaps the kind of accountability of which Mr. Cohen speaks could be realized.

Thank you for your advocacy on these and related issues, as well as the positive difference you continue to make.

John H. Grant, pastor, Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church, Asheville, N.C.
