Trailer: Shift Disturbers in Philanthropy

Are you a professional fundraiser? Volunteer on the board of a non-profit? About to make your first charitable donation?

No matter where you are on your philanthropic journey, if you're interested in the world of philanthropy, this podcast is for you.

In our first season, we're chatting with "Shift Disturbers," social sector leaders who are doing things differently. After listening, you won't think about our sector in the same way. Our motto is: in fundraising, as in life, it doesn't hurt to ask!
