Coalition of nonprofits continues to honor Bread’s president

Bread's president is honored with an outstanding leadership award.

In April, Bread’s president, Rev. David Beckmann, received the Julia Vadala Taft Outstanding Leadership Award from InterAction. The award honors outstanding and distinguished leaders in the association’s community. The award was presented at a gala banquet during InterAction’s annual convention April 18 to 20 in Washington, D.C.

InterAction is an association of U.S.-based organizations that work in international development and aid, and Bread for the World is a member. 

InterAction is continuing to honor Beckmann for his achievements, and to that end it has produced a video about him.

Interaction’s CEO, Sam Worthington, writes:

“As CEO of InterAction – the largest coalition of U.S.-based non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and partners – I have met many uniquely impressive leaders.

“These individuals inspire others, both from within the NGO sector and outside of it, to advocate for a more equal and just world. They spark innovation and encourage partnerships across physical and intangible borders. They make a lasting impact.

“Every year, InterAction celebrates and honors the achievements of these remarkable individuals by presenting the Julia Vadala Taft Outstanding Leadership Award to an individual in the community of U.S.-based international NGOs whose career and vision has transcended his or her own organization by raising the influence and profile of the U.S. NGO sector as a whole. It celebrates the very best of who we are as a sector…

“Even on paper, it is easy to see how David has dedicated his life and career to helping others rise out of poverty and alleviate hunger. We are honored to recognize this commitment, and look forward to working with David, Bread for the World, the Alliance to End Hunger, and all of our members to make this mission a reality.”
