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!

On February 24, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an invasion of Ukraine by Russian Armed Forces. Since the start of the conflict, over 1.5 million Ukrainian refugees have continued to flee to neighboring countries, while the citizens still within Ukraine remain caught in the middle of escalating Russian attacks. According to the UNHCR, the UN’s agency that oversees refugees, the world is witnessing “the fastest growing refugee crisis since World War II.” Since the start of this conflict, local, national, and international nonprofits, governments, and businesses are stepping in to offer support to Ukraine and the Ukrainian people.
