Open Door Philanthropy

Unfunded List’s mission is to educate future generations of philanthropists and social entrepreneurs about fundraising and the philanthropic process. Our main program of proposal evaluation reviews hundreds of unfunded proposals a year and provides feedback directly from relevant experts. Sometimes we’re even able to connect unfunded proposals with funders when we find a match.

The Open Door Philanthropy Podcast is an opportunity to dive deeper into how major giving works through long form interviews with major givers and experts in philanthropy. Foundation heads, heirs, heiresses, and other wealthy patrons open their doors to Unfunded List founder Dave Moss and they discuss philanthropy at length in great detail.
