"This ongoing annual endowment reflects the values and principles on which our company was founded," said IA President and CEO Linda Dunkel.

Our objective with our clients and within our own company is success at the Triple Bottom Line: superior financial results, sustainable business practices, and an employee experience that promotes productivity, satisfaction and retention," Dunkel said. "The IISC is helping bring a similar kind of success to NGOs, social services organizations, and public/private partnerships around the world."
