While most U.S. funders haven’t lifted a finger to help the world’s refugees, there are some notable exceptions—most recently, Tent.org, which offers rapid response grants for immediate refugee relief operations through the $1 million Tent Challenge.

Chobani CEO Hamdi Ulukaya Isn't Going Anywhere, Says Insider

Image Rumors have been flowing thick and fast around Greek-yogurt maker Chobani of late, as industry watchers have suggested that founder and CEO Hamdi Ulukaya could be headed for the door, to be replaced by an executive with more "operational" expertise. That's all misinformation and speculation, Chief Marketing Officer Peter McGuinness said in an interview with TheStreet. Chobani has grown quickly and is now the No. 1 selling yogurt brand in the U.S., which has led naturally to some inefficiencies. The company recently built its second factory, for example, and it's the largest yogurt-making facility in the world.
