Introduction to the Stronger Philanthropy Podcast (Episode 000)

Mark PetersenPodcast

The Stronger Philanthropy Podcast is for both grantmakers and grantseekers who lack connection to reliable guides for the journey of faith-based philanthropy. The podcast is designed to probe the motivations, values and expectations of grantmakers, and provides thoughtful strategies for making philanthropy more meaningful.

Most of us scour the internet for philanthropy advice, but find only dead ends. This podcast will offer personal stories from real people who want to love giving well.  Join Mark Petersen weekly as he interviews fascinating people on philanthropy.

In Episode 0, Mark provides an overview of the goals of this new podcast and shares his own philanthropy story.  Listen to hear how he went from ministry with the poor in Medellín, Colombia to leading a large, faith-based Canadian foundation.   He ends the episode talking about one of his favourite hobbies – hiking the Camino de Santiago.
