Adam Meyerson has been the President of the Philanthropy Roundtable since October 2001.

Between 1993 and 2001, Meyerson "was vice president for educational affairs at The Heritage Foundation. He coordinated the think tank's civil society projects, its publications on the Founding Fathers, and its "No Excuses" work on high-performing high-poverty schools. Meyerson was editor-in-chief of Heritage's magazine, Policy Review, from 1983 to 1998". [1]

"From 1979 to 1983 Meyerson was an editorial writer for the Wall Street Journal and editor of its Manager's Journal and Asia columns and its book reviews. He is co-editor of The Wall Street Journal on Management, a book published by Dow Jones-Irwin in 1985. From 1974 to 1977 he was managing editor of The American Spectator magazine, then in Bloomington, Indiana," his biographical note states. In 1986 Meyerson married Nina Shea. [2]

Asked in an interview for the Chronicle of Philanthropy what George W. Bush should do to support the non-profit sector in his second term, Meyerson said : "The vitality of the nonprofit sector depends on the strength of the market economy. Nonprofits derive their revenue from charitable contributions, purchases by customers, and sometimes government contracts and subsidies. Vigorous economic growth generates the wealth and income that make possible generous charitable contributions, robust consumer spending, and a healthy tax base. So the single best step any president can take to strengthen the nonprofit sector is to pursue policies of sustained growth in the market economy. That includes protecting our country from terrorist attacks."[3]
