Small & Gutsy offers our listeners the opportunity to learn about the smaller, less known nonprofits and social impact organizations with revenues under $10 M. Our aim is to bring their stories to life, celebrate them and further build their client, potential employee, volunteer and funding networks. The goal for the Small & Gutsy podcast is to raise the visibility of this Big little social impact sector. Tune in every week as we interview a different organization so you can learn about them, maybe find a job, volunteer, or donate.
Small & Gutsy Interviews For Land and People
For Land and People is determined to change the way we engage with each other, the Earth and the next generation of potential stewards, including and focusing on our disenfranchised and marginalized youth. What better way to engage young folks lost in our system of stigma and shame than to engage them in an environment of mentoring, leadership and kinesthetic learning using the soil and nature?
Small & Gutsy Interviews The Wish Project
The Wish Project’s goal is to provide local people in need with basic furniture, home goods and baby items, while helping the planet by recycling used goods. In this way, individuals in pain can focus on getting the social services they need and the Wish Project is reducing our collective waste - a win-win!
Small & Gutsy Interviews The Phoenix
Rise, Recover and Live is the mantra of a movement started by Scott Strode and a core group of team members to be a safe, sober active community of peers who support each other every day on the journey to recovery. This peer-driven movement is called the Phoenix, clearly for a reason...the beautiful image of an immortal bird that cyclically renews and rises to become a stronger, better self is an impressive and guiding symbol.
Small & Gutsy Interviews REM and Company
What do you get when, during COVID-19, you cross a group of students studying business who need internships, and small businesses who are struggling to survive with 1 really smart, hard-working entrepreneur who knows how to leverage learning with sustainability? REM and Company is a social impact initiative that is becoming an information hub!
Small & Gutsy Interviews BAGLY
Since1980, BAGLY has operated as a youth-led, adult-supported social support organization, committed to social justice and creating, sustaining, and advocating for programs, policies, and services for the LGBTQ+ youth community.
Small & Gutsy Interviews Cooley's Anemia Foundation
What began as the story of one man’s family is today the story of many families working together toward a common goal – better treatments and a cure for a disease that threatens our most precious resource – our children. Cooley’s Anemia or Thalassemia is an inherited blood disorder that reduces the production of functional hemoglobin (the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen).

Small and gutsy is actually a giant, innovative platform of opportunity for non- profits and all of us to share in the good these organizations offer our communities. Each podcast offers a gateway into the inspiration, mission and great minds behind an effort with public benefit. Laura’s well- researched, relational and enthusiastic interviewing style elevates each initiative, drawing us into a taste of the organization’s life. Not only is Small and Gutsy celebrating and inviting support for a rich plethora of small businesses, but it’s also enriching our minds and lives as we listen. Hopefully these opportunities to journey with a community farm to a camp serving transgender youth, from heroes of color to programs supporting those navigating homelessness and loss, offer us all ideas and pathways for making our world a better place.
I’ve listened to several episodes of this podcast so far and I love the concept, the guests, and the host, Laura. All of the non profits and organizations featured are incredible - this podcast has given me so much more information on this sector than I’d had previously, and gives so much context on how people turn personal pain and systemic issues into opportunities for growth and good. Beautiful stories.
Thank you Laura and guests for creating such a necessary, thoughtful podcast!
Thoughtful. Educational. Motivational.
Small & Gutsy, the podcast created by my close friend, Dr. Laura Wittcoff, has opened my eyes to so many situations and organizations around the country and the globe, whose missions are to help their constituents and to educate others in order to have a real impact in the communities they serve and beyond.
The organizations showcased in each podcast vary widely in subject though their common goal is to inform and to help, whether their roots and their stories are, for example, in the realm of drug addiction, hearing loss or improving mental health with anime. Their common thread is that they are non profits and social impact organizations with revenues under $10 million dollars, with a goal for helping build a better world for all of us. Small and gutsy.
