“Al Cantor is one of the most insightful commentators on philanthropy today. I never fail to learn something new and interesting when I read his columns.”

Ray D. Madoff,
Professor

Boston College Law School
and Author of "Immortality and the Law"

“Al Cantor speaks fearlessly about key issues in the nonprofit sector. His work is always meticulously researched and provocative. His voice is critical to advancing the conversation about the future of nonprofits.”

Brian Mittendorf

Chair, Department of Accounting & MIS, Fisher College of Business Distinguished Professor The Ohio State University

“There are few individuals writing and working in the philanthropic sector today who approach complex, controversial issues with more thoughtfulness, moral clarity, and ardor — qualities that are rarely found sympathetically aligned — than Al Cantor. In particular, his work raising alarms about the rise of donor-advised funds has been a vitally important civic service.”
