Share Article

New book, “Silence”, attempts to bring honesty and integrity, trust, and confidence back to the charitable sector.

According to, Americans gave nearly $300 billion to charitable causes in the year 2010. People entrust their donations to various organizations to realize their good intentions. However, some organizations use this financial power as a tool of self-interest. In Silence: The Impending Threat to the Charitable Sector, author Gary Snyder attempts to bring the overwhelming evidence of shady practices into the light.

Snyder asserts that the direction and future of the charitable sector is becoming bleak. “I am disturbed that fraud is reaching a point where the ultimate threat may be realized . . . a sabotaging of the underpinnings of giving,” he writes. “It is increasingly hard to put a good face on a troubled nonprofit sector. In the absence of any progress in stopping this nonprofit contagion, a culture of malfeasance acceptance will be created.”

A five-year endeavor, Silence: The Impending Threat to the Charitable Sector is the result of mining vast amounts of data, reviewing tens of thousands of fraud cases. It also suggests ways to convert bad habits into best practices, making sure a new calamity does not happen.

Silence: The Impending Threat to the Charitable Sector is a deep, honest look into philanthropy and its practices. It is an attempt to understand what the charitable sector can learn and how it can do better. It is an opportunity for all to learn from the current crisis where a foundation of sustainability can be built.
