Everyday, we can't avoid reading articles that tout the latest and greatest technology and innovation. What we don't see that often is the role innovation can and should play in philanthropy. If you agree that it has a role, how do you bring innovation to philanthropy?
This weeks guest, Jared Angaza, has spent his life experiencing and now re-thinking philanthropy so that it does more than just address the symptoms but innovates ways to address the underlying issues.
During this show, we covered a wide range of topics including:
- What started him down this trajectory of re-thinking philanthropy (Katrina)
- The three types of philanthropy and the role each plays (e.g. Mother Teresa)
- His concept of conscious philanthropy
- Why innovation hasn't been applied to philanthropy
- The role companies can play if they can get away from short-term thinking.
