Turning Philanthropy Inside Out

Featuring David Callahan, founder and editor of Inside Philanthropy

David Callahan, founder and editor of Inside Philanthropy, a digital media site, discusses his quest to revolutionize philanthropy by taking a more critical look at the way it’s currently practiced by foundations, donors, and grantees. Viewed as an iconoclast by some, he’s earned that reputation by questioning the practices of everyone from well-intentioned neophytes to well-established (and often acclaimed) foundations. In this podcast, David analyzes current philanthropic trends and shares his recommendations for funders who want to achieve the greatest impact with their charitable dollars.
