Welcome to What’s the Big Idea? from Abel Communications, a podcast about ideas: where they come from, what they have the power to achieve, and why some ideas catch on while others falter.

In this episode, Greg is joined by Dr. Shanaysha Sauls, CEO of the Baltimore Community Foundation (BCF). The two explore the idea of a community foundation and the main issues that BCF tackles including public education, neighborhood safety, and the digital divide. Dr. Sauls examines the power of collaboration and how BCF’s partnership with the Baltimore philanthropic community during the pandemic allowed them to streamline resources and efforts across the Baltimore region. In Dr. Sauls’ words, we can only be as successful as the place where we reside.
