VIDEO-Building Philanthropic Families
In this episode of "Dialogue for Donors", PhilanthroMedia interviewed three donors whose inherited wealth enables them the ability to offer insider perspectives for wealthy families wanting to build their philanthropic traditions.
Hear from Tracy Gary who has empowered thousands of wealthy donors to advance progressive social change, most recently through her organization: Inspired Legacies. Tracy's excellent book on the topic, Inspired Philanthropy: Creating a Giving Plan and Leaving a Legacy, has just been released in an updated third edition.
Meet Karen Pittleman At 25 she dissolved her $3 million trust fund to co-found the Chahara Foundation, a fund run by and for low-income women activists in Boston. She was also the first program director for Resource Generation which helped to launch the book. Resource Generation is a national non-profit organization that works with young people with wealth who believe in social change. She is the author of two books including: "Classified: How to Stop Hiding Your Priviledge and Use It"
Finally, hear from John Steiner who is currently knee-deep organizing a transpartisan movement. His Reuniting America is working to create a third way between sides that are most often diametrically opposed. (As an example, a recent retreat brought together women leaders as divergent as Joan Blades, Co-founder, MoveOn.org and Roberta Combs, Chairperson, Christian Coalition.)
I'm a huge fan of these three folks and thrilled to bring them to discerning donors nationwide through the syndication network that places "Dialogue for Donors" on 70 community foundation websites nationwide.
