Philanthropy 360

September 29, 2020

Health, Wealth, Living, and Learning in the Era of COVID-19

Season One and Two now available!

We at CFT are constantly asking, “What is ours to do?” In April 2020, we answered the question by launching Philanthropy 360, a podcast for nonprofits and others striving to build thriving communities through health, wealth, living, and learning.

SEASON ONE
Season One’s episodes were intentionally centered on our community’s response to COVID-19, recognizing a need to focus on surviving as a path toward thriving during this unprecedented time. Through the voices of external and internal partners, we learned just how big the heart of North Texas is, as well as how complicated it is to meet the myriad of needs in a public health crisis.



SEASON TWO
Season Two features CFT’s Chief Philanthropy Officer, Sarah Cotton Nelson, in candid conversations with Black nonprofit leaders in North Texas. We hope you’ll listen to our conversations with Antoine Joyce of All Stars Project of Dallas; Jerry Hawkins of Dallas Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation; Demetria McCain of Inclusive Communities Project; Shawn Lassiter of Leadership ISDErikka Flood-Moultrie of ConnectThree; Froswa Booker-Drew of State Fair of Texas; and Byron Sanders of Big Thought.

If you haven't already, be sure to catch up on Season One and Two before we launch Season Three!
