Giving Intelligence Podcast

Giving Intelligence is a podcast dedicated to exploring the impact of leading non-profits and the meaningful ways to support their mission. Join us as we delve into the stories of organizations making a difference all around the world and learn about the challenges they face and the innovative solutions they bring to the table. With a focus on effective giving, we'll also be discussing the importance of making well-thought-out charitable contributions. While writing a check can do a lot of good, there are often more effective ways to give.

Whether you're an experienced philanthropist or just looking to make a difference, Giving Intelligence is your guide to making the most of your giving in your community.

New episodes will drop the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month.
