    Values-Based Philanthropy: The Crucial Relationship Between Why We Give and How We Give

    Values-Based Philanthropy: The Crucial Relationship Between Why We Give and How We Give

    When beginning new, or scaling up existing philanthropic activities, many strategic donors rightfully spend a great deal of time thinking about how to invest–identifying the vehicles and approaches that provide the greatest opportunity to maximize their financial commitment. But equally crucial, is spending time on the “why” of their philanthropic approach. How can we best identify not only the causes or issues that matter most to us, but those where we can make an impact? And what methods are at our disposal to do so?

    Venture Philanthropy: Empowering Possibility

    Venture Philanthropy: Empowering Possibility

    Over the past decade or so, we’ve seen significant shifts in philanthropy’s approach to addressing some of society’s biggest problems and the growing popularity of market-based or market-inspired solutions to these challenges. Philanthropy and private equity used to be very distant worlds. Today, the idea of venture philanthropy has become more widespread. How can donors take a venture philanthropy approach?

    The Economy, Taxes and Philanthropy: What Donors Can Do to Navigate the Current Giving Environment

    The Economy, Taxes and Philanthropy: What Donors Can Do to Navigate the Current Giving Environment

    The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, or TCJA, made reductions to income tax rates for most individual tax brackets. But it also made changes to itemized deductions, which caused many in the non-profit sector to worry that this might lead to a reduction in total charitable giving by individuals. Now that we’ve reached year two of this legislation being in effect, what does the data show? How do taxes, or the economy more broadly, impact philanthropic giving? And what approaches should donors consider if they want to continue to give with impact?

    Giving With a Gender Lens: Unleashing Charitable Impact by and for Women

    Giving With a Gender Lens: Unleashing Charitable Impact by and for Women

    Traditional beliefs about philanthropy, including who gives, how, and with what effect, can lead to misunderstandings, and actually stand in the way of achieving social impact.
    One area in which misperceptions persist is the subject of women’s charitable giving. While a superficial glance at the data would make it appear that women give less in total dollars, and give to fewer organizations than men, the reality is very different, and far more nuanced. Are there differences in women’s and men’s approaches to philanthropy? Do women apply a different set of criteria than men when making philanthropic decisions, and if so, what does this mean for philanthropy writ large?

This podcast could have been so much more with the candlepower the producer and institution bring to it. If you want to hear some pretty banal observations into charity—wouldn’t go as far as calling them innovations or insights—punctuated by marketing from the sponsor (Schwab!) then this is the podcast for you. If you are looking for a better example of serious treatment of important topics in philanthropy, check out Tiny Spark with Amy Costello and Frederica Boswell.

It is a shame that philanthropy has such a dearth of good, consistent content.
