Faith and Philanthropy: Blueprints for the Common Good?

A Distinguished Visitors Dialogue

Bishop Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows and David Dodson reflect together on the role of faith and philanthropy in meeting the challenges of our common life. How can faith and philanthropy, in dialogue, help us build a world that knows both love and justice, accountability and reconciliation? How should philanthropic institutions steward their resources for the common good? What are faith communities called to give? What are legacy institutions called to keep? Listen along and pose questions of your own, as our Distinguished Visitors explore these and other timely issues at the intersection of faith and giving.

Before being elected bishop for the Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis in 2016, Bishop Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows served in the Dioceses of Newark, Central New York and Chicago. She is the first black woman to be elected a diocesan bishop in the Episcopal Church.

David Dodson is past president and now senior fellow of MDC, a nonprofit organization that works with leaders at all levels to expand opportunity and equity throughout the American South.
