Thrice Is Nice

Three consecutive events are on the horizon where my giving circle and/or I will lead discussions about various facets of philanthropy. Civic discourse and public perceptions are shifting about the essence of philanthropy and how we can practice it to benefit the beloved community. There’s far more work to do, but the seeds of our long collective effort are blossoming and I couldn’t be happier.
