TUNE IN TUESDAY AT 1PM FOR THE NON-PROFIT HOUR WITH MACKENZIE RIVER GATHERING FOUNDATION , VALLAIDA FULLWOOD, AND RADIO U FEATURED STORIES!

We start the show with a conversation about the Mackenzie River Gathering Foundation with Major Giving Director Carol Tatch. The MRG Foundation's grant-making committees work to develop genuine solutions to the difficult issues facing their communities and draw on wisdom from the people who live and work in those communities to allocate resources. We also here from Valaida Fullwood, author of Giving Back: A Tribute to Generations of African American Philanthropists.  With help from the MRG Fullwood has created an exhibition about African American philanthropy. It will be on display at Concordia University from January 20th to March 31st. 

Next we hear from two graduates of the Media Institute's Radio U program. Elise Herron recently visited the Alberta Free Hutch to find out how the 24 hour donation site started and how it has changed since it begun. Barb Seaman, winner of Best in Show and Best Documentary at the 2017 XRAY awards, shared her piece about Unified Basketball, an organization where people with and without developmental disabilities work as a team on the basketball court. 

MEET OUR NEW PRODUCER FOR 
THE NON-PROFIT HOUR, HENRY LEASIA!
After more than two great years with Jason Dennington, audio editing guru and master Engineer for our radio show, The Non-Profit Hour, Jason has passed the torch to Henry Leasia, our new Producer for the show and seasoned radio enthusiast here is Portland. In 2016 Henry graduated from the University of St Andrews in Fife, Scotland where he studied International Relations and Spanish. He's produced stories for KBOO radio's news and public affairs department, interned at Back Fence PDX and worked as a production assistant for OPB's weekday talk show Think Out Loud. He first caught the radio bug after starting a live storytelling show/podcast called It's a Wise Child with some friends in St Andrews. He's always seen radio as a powerful tool for projecting the voices of those who often slip through the cracks of mainstream media. Welcome to the MISC Team, Henry!
