Philanthropist boosts nonprofits efficiency
Philanthropist boosts nonprofits efficiency: "KINGFIELD -- Kingfield business consultant and philanthropist Warren Cook is putting his time, his innovative ideas and his money where his expertise is. But instead of advising a Maine research lab or a ski resort, he is focused on turning around flagging non-profit organizations. Cook is donating $50,000 of his own money through the Maine Community Foundation to support Common Good Ventures, a Brunswick-based non-profit organization he helped found eight years ago. Forrest Berkley and Marcie Tyre of Swans Island and Wayland, Mass. have matched Cook's $50,000 donation."
