Derrick Feldmann is the creator of the Millennial Impact Project, a multi-year study of how the next generation supports causes.  He is also the author of "Social Movements for Good: How Companies and Causes Create Viral Change." In this podcast he discusses the elements of effective social movements, whether that means advocating for public policy change, or fundraising for an important social cause. The millennial generation is engaged in social issues like never before, and companies and organizations are still trying to understand how to capture their attention, their time, and their talents. Derrick is a well-regarded author and speaker, and this episode is a fascinating look into what drives movements, and how to sustain them for lasting impact.

Claire Fiddian-Green is president and CEO of the Richard M. Fairbanks Foundation. The Foundation was established in 1986 by Richard M. (“Dick”) Fairbanks to strengthen the city of Indianapolis and perpetuate the Fairbanks legacy in the city where his family prospered for over a century. He was the President of the Foundation until his death in August 2000.

The mission of the Richard M. Fairbanks Foundation is to advance the vitality of Indianapolis and the well-being of its people. The Foundation achieves this mission by focusing on three issue-areas: education, tobacco and opioid addiction, and the life sciences.

Today, Ms. Fiddian-Green joins the Philanthropy Hour to discuss what the Foundation is doing to stem the tide of the opioid crisis in the Indianapolis community, and the role that a philanthropic Foundation plays in dealing with a national epidemic such as this one.
