They include leaders from the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, UNICEF USA, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the CDC Foundation, Feeding America, and the Center for High Impact Philanthropy (CHIP). On this final episode of Season 1, Vanguard Charitable President Jane Greenfield and Vanguard Charitable Chief Strategic Planning Officer Rebecca Moffett discuss some of the highlights from each episode and what has changed since we last spoke with our guests. In addition, we also get to hear from a few Season 1 guests about what their organizations are working on today in a world where COVID-19 and social justice are at the forefront.
We thank everyone who listened to the first season of The Value in Giving and look forward to sharing more conversations with leaders in the world of philanthropy very soon. For more information about Vanguard Charitable, please visit www.vanguardcharitable.org.

Feeding America, Casey Marsh
On Episode 5 of the Value in Giving podcast, Casey Marsh, Chief Development Officer of Feeding America, joins Vanguard Charitable President Jane Greenfield to discuss the invaluable role Feeding America is playing to help alleviate hunger during the COVID-19 pandemic. With increasingly more people battling what the organization calls "food insecurity," the need for charitable support in the world of hunger relief has arguably never been greater.

Monroe talks about what the CDC Foundation is doing now to support relief efforts and how today's work has been informed by the Foundation's fight against pandemics and epidemics in the past. Additionally, this discussion dives into who's donating (it's not just adults) and how to donate to an organization helping pave the way for a path back to a "new normal."
