Impressive podcasts about an important topic

A really terrific podcast! For many of us philanthropy is a praiseworthy activity which we unfortunately don’t know much about. Kirk does a great job of explaining the purpose of philanthropy and how donors can maximize their gifts to do the most good. I can’t wait to hear more!
