71: How Nonprofits Can Beat the ‘Mean Girls’ of Philanthropy

Episode Hosts:

Today on Cause Talk Radio, Megan and Joe talk to Merri Lee Mark, philanthropist and author of a soon-to-be published book: The Giving Game: Surviving Philanthropy’s Schemers, Dreamers and Volunteer Vixins – Come Hell or High Heels. Merri Lee exposes an uncivil underbelly of the philanthropic world. She contends that philanthropy has become a competitive sport, overrun by agenda-seeking, glory-hogging, desperate-for-attention-housewives who will do most anything to capture the prize: recognition and upward mobility. Tune in as they tackle an issue few want to talk about, but can be found in small towns and big cities across America!
