Building trust in philanthropy is one of the key components when creating relationships with your donors and staff that aren’t transactional but transformational.

In this episode of the Philanthropy212 Podcast, host Penny Cowden and Paul Kaminski, the Executive Director of the Long Beach City College Foundation, talk about building trust in philanthropy.
