Why is it difficult to give away $1 million – and make it count?

Hosted by Ashley Milne-Tyte

Effective Philanthropy

Doing the most good with our charitable contributions is something we all care about, but if you’re a big dollar philanthropist, it matters even more. In this episode we explore effective philanthropy: what helps philanthropists succeed, why their business experience matters, and how failure can drive them forward.

When businessman Ron Harrington turned to his attention and considerable fortune toward philanthropy he, like many others, confronted the issue of how to make the biggest impact. In this episode we explore the challenges of effective philanthropy, hear stories from Bill and Melinda Gates, talk about the importance of failure, discuss the solution the Harrington project is putting in place and get some tips from Melanie Schnoll-Begun of Morgan Stanley Philanthropy Management.
