Arlington, VA (August 19, 2021) – The standards-based charity evaluation group BBB’s Give.org is thrilled to announce the launch of season two of the Heart of Giving Podcast on August 17th. The Heart of Giving Podcast fosters an atmosphere of benevolence and service through showcasing stories of active donors who have a passion for giving, making a difference, and inspiring others. 

In season two, the podcast will revisit some of its most inspirational episodes and walk its listeners through the compelling motivations behind why some of the Podcast’s esteemed guests like Dr. Helene Gayle, the CEO of The Chicago Community Trust, or Kevin Washington, CEO of YMCA of the USA, and others decided to dedicate their lives to serve those in need. The Heart of Giving Podcast will feature several new guests this season, along with important tips and tricks for its listeners. 

This one-of-a-kind podcast enables both donors and charity professionals to learn a lot about the philanthropic sector and charitable giving. From stories that inspire to conversations rooted in charity, the Heart of Giving Podcast speaks to people's desire to contribute unselfishly and commit to doing good.

“I’m excited to launch this new season which builds on the amazing stories we delivered last year”, said H. Art Taylor, President and CEO of BBB's Give.org and host of the Heart of Giving Podcast, “I expect our listeners will learn a lot and be inspired by what they hear and moved to support the causes that matter to them.”
