It Takes Guts to Give

Strategic, highly focused philanthropy—combining head and heart—has attracted a growing number of individuals and families and those who advise them. Donors merge passion, drive, and empathy with strategy, and employ the tools—be it grants, social investments or mentorship—to best meet the need. While professional expertise and academic training inform their initial choices, the journey of a donor compelled by a sense of urgency is also one of continuous learning. Hear how Carrie Walton Penner, Jean Case, and Ann Limberg balance head and heart, giving and investing, empowerment and leadership to realize their ethos of service.
