Kris Kewitsch

Executive director
Charities Review Council

Since 2012, Kris Kewitsch has helped ensure that the Charities Review Council functions as an independent resource for people who want to make informed giving decisions while helping nonprofits advance their work. In 2013, Kewitsch led a three-year rolling review of the council’s accountability standards, which serve as a set of benchmarks for more than 500 nonprofits and an assessment tool for thousands of donors. Seeing the lack of nonprofits meeting the “diversity, equity and inclusion” standard, Kewitsch initiated the development of an affordable and accessible toolkit for nonprofits to assess and improve their cultural competence, which the council will roll out this spring.
