Heifer Foundation Announces Management Change
Mrs. Ginn and the Heifer Foundation Board of Trustees mutually agreed Mrs. Ginn should step down amid allegations of copyright infringement and plagiarism. This decision follows a thorough investigation conducted by the Board and outside legal counsel.
“As a leading global philanthropic organization, Heifer Foundation must conduct itself with the utmost integrity,” said Heifer Foundation Board Chairman
“Mrs. Neill has 13 years of experience with our organization, and we are confident Heifer Foundation will continue to thrive under her leadership,” Mr. McLean continued. “Working closely with our loyal donors, we look forward to continuing our ongoing support for the work of Heifer International.”
The Board will commence a search for Mrs. Ginn’s permanent replacement.
