How has philanthropy changed in the last two years? Where is it going? What do nonprofits need to know about the ever-changing landscape?

In this episode, I talk with one of my favorite authors and thought leaders, Rhodri Davies. Rhodri is a widely-respected expert and commentator on philanthropy and civil society issues. He joins me to discuss what the media is getting wrong in the coverage of charities, how to maintain the spirit of collaboration created during the pandemic, and what’s next for philanthropy and the third sector.

Rhodri is Director of Philanthropy Matters, a new think tank focused on philanthropy issues, and the host of the Philanthropisms podcast. He is also a Pears Research Fellow in the Centre for Philanthropy at the University of Kent, and the Philanthropy Expert in Residence at the Pears Foundation.
