An interview with John Leong, CEO, Kupu
One of the core philosophies embedded in our philanthropic support of efforts in Hawaii, is a belief that paying attention to and helping to look after the capacity of organizations to do the work they do, is as important as supporting the work itself. Part of an organization’s capacity to do the work involves its leadership at the staff and board levels. As a foundation, we appreciate building relationships with each organization’s director/CEO and spending time understanding their values in leadership and how they work with their team and community.
John Leong embodies the values we appreciate about some of the most effective nonprofit leaders in Hawaii. We are in the middle of a multi-year general operating support commitment for Kupu, and part of that is driven by the trust we have in John and his team.
This a nice 40+ minute interview as a part of the Hawaii Business Magazine podcast series.
