In this episode…

A culture of philanthropy feels intangible—but desirable. Many nonprofits aren’t aware of how important it is to foster this culture in your organization or even how to create it. According to Karen Eber Davis, the culture of philanthropy is a collection of behaviors. To that aim, this demonstrates a collective mindset that everyone around the organization determines, to a large extent, the success of the organization.

So, how would you know if your organization has a culture of philanthropy? And how do you build one if there’s none?

Listen to this episode of the Philanthropy212 Podcast with Penny Cowden as she discusses the culture of philanthropy with Karen Eber Davis, a nonprofit consultant and President of Karen Eber Davis Consulting. They talk about what having a culture of philanthropy means, how to identify it, and build it in your nonprofit organization.
