Creating Community for Good

We are all in this together.

Welcome to Creating Community for Good, a podcast dedicated to philanthropy: the love of humankind. Here we will band together across disciplines within the ecosystem of the nonprofit sector to illuminate perspectives, decode motivations, and leverage strategies in the business of generosity. On this show, your host, Lindsay Simonds, invites you to a friendly conversation about contributing to good. With this, we will ultimately increase empathy, create stronger bonds and make more impact on mission-driven work. Whether you are a nonprofit executive, a legacy donor, a major gifts fundraiser, a crowdsource hacker, program director, impact investor, corporate partner or beneficiary, this space is for all of us to inform, inspire and evolve.
