Doug White


Doug White, a long-time leader in the nation’s philanthropic community, is an author, teacher, and advisor to nonprofit organizations and philanthropists.

He is Co-Chair of the FoolProof Foundation’s Walter Cronkite Project Committee and a governing board member of the Secular Coalition of America.

Doug has published five books about nonprofits and philanthropy. His most recent, “Wounded Charity," (Paragon House, 2019), analyzes the allegations of mismanagement made against the Wounded Warrior Project, and it describes how WWP came to be so heavily criticized and why much of the criticism was unfounded.

He published “Abusing Donor Intent” (Paragon House, 2014), which chronicles the historic lawsuit brought against Princeton University by the children of Charles and Marie Robertson, the couple who donated $35 million in 1961 to endow the graduate program at the Woodrow Wilson School. The family contended that Princeton abused its mandate to spend the money as the donors wished - and as the university agreed.
