Field Notes in Philanthropy
A podcast from the Johnson Center and WGVU Public Media
Philanthrōpía: love for mankind. When we say “philanthropy,” we’re including the entire ecosystem of nonprofit workers, organizations, donors, foundations, and volunteers who make up the social sector in the United States.
One in ten American workers is employed by the nonprofit sector, but it seems that most philanthropy in this country happens off the front page. We still struggle to talk about the impact of philanthropy — on elections, on policy, on communities — but we’re living it every day. So we started a podcast to host these conversations, to explore the places where politics, current events, and philanthropy meet.
