Strategic Philanthropy, Ltd.’s Podcast

Philanthropy in the New Normal is a monthly Podcast Series produced by Strategic Philanthropy, Ltd. This limited series looks at how philanthropy has been impacted by the events of 2020; the global health crisis, the economic downturn in great part created by the Pandemic, the displacement of people and damage to the environment caused by an accelerating global warming and the spotlight that has been focused on social justice and racial inequalities. These challenges of 2020 will continue into 2021 and perhaps for years after that.

Throughout the series we will explore where philanthropy fits in terms of addressing systemic issues, protecting the safety net for marginalized and disenfranchised populations and providing an opportunity for more people to get involved.

The podcast series is available for free on the firm’s website, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify or wherever you go to listen to podcasts.

Episode 3 | The Now Generation

They used to call younger leaders “the next generation”, but don’t say that to Millennials or Gen Z.
