I recently had the privilege of holding the second fireside chat in The College’s Inspiring Leaders in Philanthropy web series with Scott Davison, CLU®, ChFC®, OneAmerica Chairman, President, and CEO, and Tony Mason, President and CEO of the Indianapolis Urban League.

The inspirational and operational takeaways filled a *second* book – the first was filled by Scott and Nick Tedesco, President and CEO of the National Center for Family Philanthropy, during our first fireside chat on March 17.

It’s an unfortunate fact that many underserved and underrepresented communities are still struggling to forge the relationships that open the access and opportunities to meaningful community and economic resources. Tony, Scott, and I discussed how economic mobility and wealth-building programs strengthen these communities by increasing economic growth and fostering a more diverse workforce.

The Inspiring Leaders in Philanthropy web series is emblematic of The College’s commitment to philanthropic education – working with financial advisors, gift and trust officers, community and private foundation leaders, and back office professionals on how to discuss philanthropic intent, determine the appropriate platforms to empower philanthropic giving, and develop robust philanthropic plans that are motivational and executable. The College’s Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy® (CAP®) is our fastest growing professional designation program – engaging philanthropic professionals in a robust educational curriculum that delivers the strategies and skills needed to advise clients on charitable giving and guide charitable organizations in their fundraising efforts. You can watch my conversation with Tony and Scott below.
