Quote of the Podcast:
“Philanthropy is a wholistic thing. Your understanding of giving isn’t shaped simply through the silo of economics. Your giving is shaped by who you are as a whole person – your understanding of yourself and your place in the world, your understanding of who your neighbour is and whether or not you have a responsibility to them.”
