Rank #1: Strategies for Funding Racial Justice Organizations

Podcast cover
Read more
In the wake of the deaths of Michael Brown, Eric Garner and others, many people have wondered what they can do to support the growing movement for change. In response, multiple donor networks came together to develop a Racial Justice pledge where donors can commit to fund at least one additional racial justice organization or increase their giving to a racial justice organization they already support. Many of you have taken the pledge, and we've received requests for advice and support on putting your pledge into action. On this joint WDN/Bolder Giving webinar, WDN members Connie Heller and Cathy Raphael will share their reflections and experiences funding racial justice work. --- Hosted by: Women Donors Network & Bolder Giving

Rank #3: Bold Giving at the Intersection of Faith & Philanthropy

Podcast cover
Read more
Faith and religious beliefs are one of the biggest factors in our decisions to give. Research shows that a religious person is 23% more likely to give and 26% more likely to volunteer than a nonreligious person. But what specific role does faith or could faith play in your philanthropy? How do you balance certain teachings of your faith and your own values in giving? We invite you to join two of our amazing Bold Givers, Rose Feerick and Anjhula Mya Bais, who come from very different faith backgrounds and hear about their philanthropic journeys and how they've integrated their understanding of faith in meeting the needs of the underserved. Anjhula, a next generation philanthropist and successful Indian model, has embraced the responsibility of being born into wealthy Hindu family and embarked on a personal spiritual journey through teachings of Buddhism to seek spiritual value in money. Through these experiences, she founded the Bais-Selvanathan Foundation, aimed at corrective and supportive action for a host of anti-corruption activities and pro-humanity endeavors in India and around the world. Rose channeled her Catholic faith to engage with money as a spiritual practice and sought something deeper within her faith that could hold in the face of injustice. At Harvest Time, organization she leads, she created a safe space for peers to talk about money and Christian faith. As we draw close to the end of the year, we hope you'll join us to explore important issues at the intersection of faith and philanthropy and explore how faith may be a factor in your own giving. --- Hosted by: Babbie Jacobs; Featuring Bold Givers: Anjhula Mya Bais, Rose Feerick

Rank #4: Powerful Giving Isn't Always Big Giving

Podcast cover
Read more
Ever feel frustrated that you don't have enough money to create the changes you want to see in the world? Join two of our amazing bold givers, Jeff Zinsmeyer and Jessie Spector, who have both leveraged their financial resources to achieve big impacts advancing a social justice agenda. Hear about how to leverage progressive philanthropy to promote equity and human wellbeing and the power of small gifts to make big change. As founder of the Discount Foundation, a small foundation focused on supporting winnable campaigns around economic opportunity for the poor, Jeff leverages his foundation's grants and access to other funders and leaders. Discount's focus is on eliminating economic inequalities by assisting people who lack wealth and power in improving their lives and making the "American Dream" a reality for all. They've played a critical role in building and securing support for the Living Wage movement and continue to focus on workplace organizing as a crucial avenue for low-wage workers to achieve greater economic justice. As Executive Director of Resource Generation, Jessie uses the privilege of a wealthy upbringing to organize a multi-racial constituency of young people with wealth and class privilege who are committed to organizing toward the equitable distribution of land, wealth, and power. She is also moving her own resources through several cross-class models of wealth redistribution including the Criminal Justice Initiative, a circle of donors and activists who use consensus to fund the transformation of the criminal justice system. Get inspired by Jeff & Jessie's experiences and gain insights and inspiration about what you can do to invest in big change, regardless of how much you have to give. As Jeff says, "Don't discount what you can do!" --- Hosted by: Jason Franklin; Featuring Bold Givers: Jeff Zinsmeyer, Jessie Spector

Rank #5: Giving & Investing in Your Own Backyard

Podcast cover
Read more
Most giving happens locally as we act on our commitment to our community, work to build a stronger local economy, develop civic pride, and teach the next generation about the importance of giving back. But how we give locally is expanding - we can make gifts, invest in social businesses, serve as community volunteers, mobilize other donors in-person and online, develop new communities and more. We hope you'll join two of our amazing Bold Givers, Bonny Meyer and Mark Reed, for an intimate conversation about what it can mean to be a bold local leader and leverage your giving, investing and leadership to drive social change in your own community. Through the Meyer Family Fund, Bonny supports empowerment programs for underserved teens and vulnerable adults in California's Napa and Anderson Valleys. Recognizing that safe, net-zero energy affordable housing can have a positive impact on the environment, economic and social resilience and health, she is building Thriving Communities urban and suburban ecovillages in Napa. Through the Contact Fund, Mark works at the intersection of philanthropy and investing and uses a "place-based" investing philosophy to concentrate capital in under-served neighborhoods throughout New York City. Hear about these and other experiences they both have to share, and explore possibilities for your own local giving and investing. --- Hosted by: Jason Franklin; Featuring Bold Givers: Bonny Meyer, Mark Reed

Many donors see their role as simply funding great work. Others take a step beyond as board members or volunteers. And still others give 100% and more - stepping up as organizers, leaders, networkers, fundraisers and funders for the causes they believe in. Join us in a conversation with two Bold Givers, Jodie Evans & Charlie Rounds, who will stretch the limits of your imagination about what an engaged donor can do. From producing Oscar winning documentaries and preserving the ecosystem, to tirelessly advocating for peace, philanthropist and co-founder of Code Pink Jodie Evans uses her "passion for taking on the impossible" to drive social change. Charlie Rounds has magnified his giving through the Mark and Charlie Gay Lesbian Fund for Moral Values with continued volunteering and organizing for LGBTQ and human rights, including envisioning and helping launch Bolder Giving's Give OUT Day which has raised over $1.6 million for LGBTQ organizations nationwide in the last 2 years. What do you do for the causes you believe in? What else might be possible? Join us and explore what it can mean to be a hands-on, tireless philanthropist & advocate and give 100% of yourself for social change. --- Hosted by: Jason Franklin; Featuring Bold Giver: Charlie Rounds; Participant: Jodie Evans

Funders from around the world realize that to ensure a livable future for humanity requires that people have ready access to clean and plentiful water, fresh air, open spaces, a stable climate, and a rich array of biodiversity.

Yet many funders shy away from funding in this area, often due to its complex nature, at a time when our support is so critical! We hope you'll join Kristin Hull, Director of the Nia Community Fund and Joel Solomon, Chairman & Co-Founder of Renewal for a conversation about bold giving and investing toward a just and sustainable environment for all. Whether you give globally or closer to home or are considering stepping up your giving, our speakers will explore some of the issue surrounding this complex and often overwhelming funding area and discuss strategies for funding and investing toward environmental causes from choosing the right groups to measuring impact. --- Hosted by: Babbie Jacobs; Featuring Bold Givers: Joel Solomon, Kristin Hull
