Daniel Borochoff:

President and Founder
Follow @DanielBorochoff

Daniel Borochoff has long been a strong and independent voice for ethics and transparency in the nonprofit sector. He founded CharityWatch, a nationally acclaimed charity watchdog, in 1992 to address the need for research and analysis on charity finances, fundraising practices, and governance. CharityWatch, originally named “American Institute of Philanthropy” or “AIP,” provides information on wise giving to thousands of concerned individuals, foundations, and corporations. Borochoff has over 25 years of experience as a philanthropic and financial analyst. Thousands of newspapers, magazines, TV, and radio stations have covered his insights into nonprofit practices. He was a founding board member of the Hearts and Minds Network and the ePhilanthropy Foundation.

During times of crisis, Borochoff has been asked by Congress to give critical and independent testimony. Borochoff testified on the charities’ response to the survivors of 9/11 in 2001, and in 2005 he testified on the charities’ response in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. CharityWatch’s research on veterans charities’ failing performance, while wars in Iraq and Afghanistan rage on, triggered Congressional hearings in 2007 and 2008, and Borochoff was again asked by Congress to participate.

Borochoff served on two task forces of the Financial Accounting Standards Board that set accounting standards for charities. He served as an awards panelist for the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ), Independent Sector, and the Community Arts Assistance Program for the City of Chicago. He has given speeches at national SPJ conferences. Borochoff was a speaker at the 2014 National Association of Attorneys General/NASCO Conference and was the keynote speaker for the 2011 American Institute of CPAs Not-for-Profit Financial Executive Forum. He has an MBA from Indiana University and a BS in Accounting from Syracuse University.

Mr. Borochoff does not shy away from controversies when it comes to speaking out against bad actors and praising good ones. See his insightful comments on pressing issues involving charities and giving In The News.
