Lessons in Donations with Ken Nopar (Ep. 76)

There is no shortage of charitable causes—and it’s impossible to give to every single one. It’s important to ask yourself some critical questions to help determine where you would like to allocate your funds: What is the cause? Who is the money going to? Why should I give my money away?

In this episode, Peter Raskin is joined by Ken Nopar, vice president & senior philanthropic advisor at the American Endowment Foundation*. Ken shares how he got into the field of philanthropy, along with how and why people choose to donate to various charitable causes.
