Is It Time to Revolutionize Philanthropy?

12pm PDT

When Lisa Greer and her husband Josh found themselves in the 1 percent virtually overnight, her biggest desire was to share her wealth. But the path to giving was more complicated than she thought. As a long time entrepreneur and a “self-confessed fixer,” she went to work. In her new book, Philanthropy Revolution, she shares invaluable advice that forces everyone to rethink how to inspire donors, build relationships and make a real difference.

She will be in conversation with Catherine Schneider, AJU's VP of Advancement, and Chief Development Officer.
