Don't miss the ninth episode of Philanthropy Daily's podcast, Givers, Doers, & Thinkers!
This week, Jeremy speaks with journalist and author Gracy Olmstead. She's written for The American Conservative, National Review, The Federalist, and The Washington Times, and elsewhere. Her new book is now available for pre-order Uprooted: Recovering the Legacy of the Places We've Left Behind. Jeremy and Gracy discuss whether the trendy concept of localism has any real meaning, our need for rootedness, the comeback of the front porch, and the new sites of community—including CrossFit, SoulCycle, and the 2020 sourdough phenomenon.
You'll also hear from American Philanthropic Partner Justin Streiff. He dives into planning for 2021 and what fundraisers should look back at in 2020. Justin also goes into setting realistic goals and expectations for your development team.
