Unfunded List’s mission is to educate future generations of philanthropists and social entrepreneurs about fundraising and the philanthropic process. Our first podcast “Wine Grants” involved wine, a booth, and unscripted chat about philanthropy. Those episodes are archived here.

Currently, the Open Door Philanthropy podcasts interviews philanthropists all over the world for seasons which are grouped by theme. Season One featured notable philanthropists, Season Two was held live at a philanthropy conference, Season 3 (or Season Sh3) focused on woman-identifying philanthropists, For Season Four we interviewed collective givers. 

All of our philanthropy podcasts are available for free wherever you get your podcasts. Interested in being a guest? Please email
