I don't understand how Packard identifies its friends among nonprofits, but once they do, they are very supportive funders, more down-to-earth than other funders most of the time. Outside of the grant process, though, they often make faux pas in interactions with nonprofits and human service clients.

Pros

Positive leader in the field, Insightful, Friendly, Builds relationships
