Tactical Philanthropy Podcast: Susan Raymond

Today’s interview is with Susan Raymond. Susan is Senior Managing Director of Research Evaluation and Strategic Planning for Changing our World.  A leading consulting firm helping nonprofits and private and corporate philanthropists achieve their goals. She’s also chief analyst for onphilanthropy.com, a global resource for nonprofit professionals.

Susan is the author of the book “The Future of Philanthropy”, as well as the soon to be released “Mapping the New World of American Philanthropy”, of which I am a contributing author.

This is an excellent interview. Susan touches on themes such as the blending of for profit and nonprofit models, the intertwining of economic and social advancement and even responds to Phil Cubeta’s disparaging description of Micro Finance as “Micro Loan Sharking”.
