What did The African SOUP need?

Jon helped The African SOUP gain an understanding of how their board is performing and how it could improve in areas like governance practices, stewardship, revenue generation, and executive management.

Why is this project important?

This project will help us develop more motivated and productive Boards that will ultimately benefit the fundraising capacity of our organization as well as its strategic plan.

This project will save us $10,298, allowing us to put money back into our community and focus on important education and health programs.

I love working with smart and interesting people, learning new things and challenging some of my own perspectives. After a career in energy markets in Asia and Europe, I settled with my family in Santa Fe NM where I have tried to help non- and for-profit entities grow and prosper. Though a bit wonkish, I am passionate about organizational governance and process. I am currently the vice-chair of United World College USA and a member of the International Council of the UWC movement. I play the oboe and english horn (until recently in the community orchestra) enjoy cooking especially locally-farmed produce.

Executive Director

Jill has been a pleasure to work with. Unfortunately, our work has been put on hold due to the global pandemic. But I do look forward to continue working with Jill and her incredible organization once the dust settles. I feel privileged to have helped them in a small way and wouldn't hesitate to recommend if the opportunity arises.
