Philanthropy Revolutionary

In today’s episode, we speak with Lisa Zola Greer, an entrepreneur, investor, and philanthropist who has managed her family’s giving for the last decade. She has served on dozens of boards and commissions, including the Beverly Hills Cultural Heritage Commission, the international board of the New Israel Fund, the Make-a-Wish Foundation, and the Los Angeles District Attorney Crime Prevention Foundation. In her new book, Philanthropy Revolution, she describes how she and her husband found themselves in the 1% virtually overnight and how their efforts to give generously to charity were often thwarted by the seemingly inflexible processes and scripts of fundraisers who suddenly saw them as piggybanks. Now the self-described “fixer” is working to reverse the decline in the number of Americans who give to charity by showing how nonprofits can establish and maintain truly collaborative and effective relationships.
