In the twenty-fourth episode, Alisha Miranda and Rachel Stephenson Sheff speak with Victoria Vrana, Deputy Director of Philanthropic Partnerships at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. In this role, Victoria leads the Foundation’s Giving By All initiative, which aims to inspire and enable more informed and intentional generosity by everyday givers.
Giving By All has been at the forefront of the philanthropic response to COVID-19, and this episode is all about that: exploring the current landscape of philanthropy in the time of coronavirus, and understanding what it means for the present (and future) of fundraising. From the loosening of grant restrictions, to more collaboration, rapid response, microdonations and direct cash transfers - the landscape is quickly changing and Victoria and her team are at the centre of it all. This is an episode every non-profit should pay attention to during this extraordinary time.
