East Meets West (AFGG IF 2012 Grant Recipient)

Organization’s Geographic Region of Focus: Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Timor Leste, Philippines, India, Thailand, and Myanmar.

Alliance Areas of Concern:  Poverty, Education, Health

Challenge:  How to address downturn in receipt of charitable contributions so as to realize the organization’s primary mission, serving the poor and the disadvantaged in Asia..

Solution:  Create a fee for service dental business center at a DaNang, Vietnam clinic which currently serves only indigent population; revise existing volunteer program to become a voluntourism program, generating fees for costs currently absorbed by applicant.

Excerpted from the Proposal:

“East Meets West is pursuing two innovative ideas to address the decline in funding. The first innovation is the implementation of a fee-for-service Dental Business Center at the Da Nang city clinic. The goal of this innovation is to expand the client base and services to include advanced paid services such as whitening, braces, crowns, implants, endodontics, periodontics and orthodontics in addition to regular services. The goal is to offer better care at a competitive price, as compared to other private dental practices in Da Nang, Vietnam. This fee-for-service clinic will help to subsidize up to 40% of the dental program.

The second innovation is revitalizing the volunteer management program into a type of “volun-tourism” experience. By raising the fees for the volunteer program as well as increasing the level of assistance in planning and welcoming volunteers on the dental outreach trips, the dental program seeks to create a self-sustaining volunteer program that does not rely on funds raised elsewhere.”

Leonard Kaplan’s creation of the Alliance for Global Good was the expression of his passionate philanthropy.  It’s also the logical outgrowth of all that came before it.  Together with his wife and philanthropic partner Tobee, and through a family foundation later renamed TOLEO, they gave unselfishly of resources and time to improve their community and the world for more than twenty-five years.

Tobee & Leonard Kaplan

Tobee & Leonard Kaplan

The Alliance’s focus on five areas of giving—health, education, environment, poverty, and world relations—is mirrored in Leonard’s past.  He has made major gifts to Duke University Medical Center and the Duke Comprehensive Cancer and Heart Centers, to the Lineberger Cancer Center at UNC Chapel Hill, to the Cardiac Rehabilitation program at Moses Cone Hospital, and had a leadership position at the Greensboro Cardiac Rehabilitation Program.  In 2004, Leonard and Tobee built the new building for the Women’s Resource Center in Greensboro. He created scholarships for residents of Guilford County to attend North Carolina colleges and universities, and was a founding donor of Elon University Law School.  Critically, in partnership with the Kellogg Foundation, Leonard helped create the Center for Organizational Leadership, a philanthropic studies program (which was one of first nationally to educate non-profit executives).

“Everyone wants to leave something to their grandchildren.”

“The money won’t matter if the world they live in is so far gone,” Kaplan says. “The opportunity now is to take some of what might become their inheritance, and use it soon to make the world a better place.”

Addressing poverty, Leonard made possible the building of two houses for Habitat for Humanity, and by providing food for hungry people both close to home in Greensboro, and as far abroad as the former Soviet Union.   The Kaplans were staunch supporters of Trickle Up, which provides grant financing to women in the developing world who want to start their own microenterprise.

Leonard gave not only of his wealth, but also of his time and expertise, taking on leadership positions in many organizations and campaigns such as the Greater Greensboro United Way DeToqueville Society, and as a Core Member of ACTION Greensboro, a nonprofit dedicated to improving public education, revitalization of downtown Greensboro, and leveraging economic development.

Active in their community of faith, the Kaplans built a new building for the Greensboro Jewish Federation, and for the Hillel youth organization at U.N.C., Chapel Hill.  He served on the board of the Jewish Foundation of Greensboro, and on that of the national Hillel organization, and was a founder of Camp Ramah Darom.

Viewing giving as a responsibility of affluence, Leonard led by example, and encouraged others to do the same.  He created Wealth & Giving, an educational program designed to inspire the largest wealth holders in this country to be more generous.  The Alliance continues that work by promoting and providing donors with opportunities for effective and efficient giving.
