Jack Shakely

Jack Shakely is president emeritus of the California Community Foundation and a senior fellow at the Center on Philanthropy and Public Policy at the University of Southern California. Prior to this, he was publisher of Foundation News for the Council on Foundations. And before that he served in the Peace Corps in Costa Rica and was an officer in the U.S. Army. If you're thinking, "He's done everything but write a book" — well, he's done that, too. In fact, he's authored two novels: The Confederate War Bonnet and POWs at Chigger Lake, the former of which won an Independent Publishers Award in 2009.
