How does the rationale that the trustees “directly and actively manage the foundation staff” square with the presence, until they just forced her out, of an executive director? Does the foundation staff of 14 really require three “co-CEOs”? And why did they terminate the highly regarded executive director?
I appreciate that the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy and the Star Tribune brought this questionable activity to public attention. Now it is time for the attorney general to investigate.
