Although Soros has not led foundations to follow him into Eastern Europe and Russia (with perhaps the exception of Bill Gates who will build libraries and Internet educational sites in Russia), in the long term his Foundations provide a model for the future—a model that works without regard to borders.
Regardless of what his detractors claim, Soros has tried to put half of his profits to good use. He has helped open a healthy competition by engaging in the "race of giving” with Ted Turner (owner of CNN) and Bill Gates (Microsoft.). Where their programs have tried to solve global problems (such as disease prevention), Soros stresses national development of civic society and Civil Society. To this end, Soros has most recently focused on human rights issues in what appeared to have been lost cases such as Haiti and Guatemala, where education for the masses and open communications have been nearly non-existent.57
Soros is a “responsible” capitalist committed to building and promoting democratic institutions. In 1999, he helped lay the basis of the 1999 Warsaw Pact, which promoted global democracy.58 He has helped build democracy in many nations by implicitly replicating the U.S. NGO model. This consists of an open elected board made up of local prestigious people from different interest groups: businessmen, doctors, academics, union leaders etc. Where Rockefeller failed, Soros has created successful NGOs, with local boards.
Soros’ local boards of directors make their decisions openly and transparently. Projects are being funded by open review of the projects. They spend their funds with transparency and also submit a final report at the end of the year. If NGOs have not been successful in completing the operation, no further funding will be available.
Clearly this major world figure not only has created the Decentralized Model of Philanthropy, but he continues to be ever more active around the world. Ironically, his move out of hedge-funds in 2000 will give him even more time to keep his existing NPPOs operating. If he runs true to form, Soros will no doubt surpass 31 as the number of Foundations he seeks to leave to world history.
