Giving Tuesday: Great "On Point" Podcast

Today is Giving Tuesday and there was a great panel discussion on the On Point Podcast.  Definitely worth a listen. Great topics ranging from problems with IRS enforcement to the effect of Donor Advised Funds on overall giving.  Prof. Ray Madoff from BC gave her critique of these funds.  Good discussion on statistics of giving as well as the effectiveness of giving.
