[MICHAEL VOSS] Welcome to Giving With Impact, an original podcast series from Stanford Social Innovation Review, developed with the support of Schwab Charitable. I’m your host, Michael Gordon Voss, publisher of SSIR.

So you’re an intelligent, successful, impassioned individual who’s looking to create real impact around a social issue that matters to you. Okay, now what? This is the place many donors, whether they are new to philanthropy or have been making direct donations for years, often find themselves when first exploring how to deploy their philanthropic resources in a thoughtful and proactive manner in order to improve the impact they have on the causes they support.
There are a range of organizations and solutions out there to help donors navigate this process, including community foundations and national donor-advised funds. These organizations can not only provide direction into ways to maximize charitable impact, but thanks to their resources and expertise, often have unique perspectives on the future of giving.
