Philanthropy is part of the essential fabric of civil society and Edgar is an important voice in ensuring this private power is exercised in an inclusive and loving way.

Do you struggle to portray your program participants as their own agents of change, while admitting that they also need your organization's help? Do you worry about jeopardizing the dignity of the people in your stories for the sake of raising money? Do you find yourself debating ethical storytelling principles with colleagues who don't see eye-to-eye?Tough but important questions - and Caliopy Glaros has us covered. Caliopy (CAL EE OH PEE) is the Principal Consultant at Philanthropy without Borders, a firm which provides strategic guidance on donor travel, ethical storytelling, and virtual engagement. She has helped organizations in more than sixty countries around the world build storytelling processes that are contributor-led, donor-educating, and money-raising, all while instilling principles of ethical storytelling in their teams. Here are some of the topics we discussed:When donor behavior doesn't line up with your organizational values What it means to have an ethical storytelling strategy and processHow nonprofits can share stories authentically and without tokenizing the subjects of the storiesHow nonprofit staff can get buy-in from their teams and co-workers when changing their strategy around storytelling A Caliopy Glaros quotable: "In our communications we actually have the potential for changing some of the beliefs and behaviors that have contributed to and held up these very inequitable systems... We have a chance to counter that in our narratives, and be influencing our donors, and be bringing them closer in to our organization as partners who embody these shared values - not just asking for cash."

Delusional Altruism author and philanthropy consultant, Kris Putnam-Walkerly, joins us again on the Wealth Preservation Podcast and dives deeper into the topics of her book and the errors and education she gives to other philanthropists. Whether it is a family foundation, charitable organization, or just a stand-alone philanthropist, Kris has amazing insight on how to make a bigger impact and minimize waste.

Kris shares that those, at the core of a client's wealth and legal counsel, are in a unique position to bring creative solutions to the table. This can help leave a legacy behind, improve the world around us, and turn into generational clients. That is a WIN-WIN-WIN! So why don't more people do this?

James Shapiro obtained his medical degree from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, and trained in surgery at the University of Bristol. After coming to Canada in 1993, he received training in liver transplantation and hepatobiliary surgery at the University of Alberta, and earned a PhD in Experimental Surgery. Shapiro developed a brand new approach to optimize islet cell transplant engraftment that involved a radical departure from previous practice. Of almost 300 islet transplants attempted before 1999, fewer than 10% of these worked in patients. His protocol was designed to address many of the previous shortcomings by transplanting sufficient numbers of islets into the liver by using multiple donors, and by testing a novel anti-rejection strategy that avoided steroids and allowed the transplanted islets to work at their best. The result became known internationally as the ‘Edmonton Protocol.' Shapiro led the clinical team that tested his approach in seven initial patients, all of whom (100%) were able to discontinue the need for insulin injections for periods beyond a year. He was the lead author in the landmark paper published in July, 2000 that described these results. Since then, he and his team have transplanted almost 300 Canadians and have continued to refine and optimize the protocol. This treatment has been replicated many times internationally, and over 2000 patients worldwide have now received islet transplants using the backbone of his protocol. A large ‘registration' trial conducted in Canada and the USA reported its positive findings in 2016 in the Journal Diabetes Care. Countries including England, Scotland, France, Switzerland, Australia, and Canada have approved and funded islet transplantation as part of ‘standard of care' for patients with brittle, difficult-to-control, forms of Type 1 diabetes. Since the development of the Edmonton Protocol, he has led or co-led three major ongoing international multicentre clinical trials to further improve islet transplantation outcomes. He leads the Edmonton team, which is the largest islet transplantation team worldwide. Shapiro also led the first-in-human stem cell transplant trials in Edmonton, Canada in 2014, and continues to refine stem cell transplantation approaches in patients. So far these studies are proving both promising and safe when tested in Canadians. In his basic science laboratory, Professor Shapiro developed a new means to transplant cells beneath the skin by using a temporary tube to induce new blood vessels to grow. Before then, islet transplants beneath the skin failed universally, but this treatment is now known as the ‘Deviceless Technique'. In liver transplantation research, Shapiro and his team recently conducted two trials in Edmonton of a new machine designed to incubate and keep donated human livers alive outside the body before transplantation. This technology is radically altering our ability to rescue damaged livers and provide safer livers for transplant. It is also allowing these transplants to happen during regular daylight hours. Professor Shapiro further led a cross-Canadian research team to test similar technologies in heart, lung, kidney and pancreas transplantations as part of the Canadian National Transplant Research Project. His busy research lab is currently working on more than 30 projects and 15 human clinical trials. One is an exciting immune reset trial. In this study, people newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes are given a combination of targeted medications designed to reset their immune system and repair the pancreas. Besides maintaining an active immunology/transplant research laboratory, Dr. Shapiro has a busy clinical practice specializing in hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgery, surgical oncology, as well as transplant surgery, and was featured in an internationally acclaimed movie about organ transplantation called ‘Memento Mori.' A shorter length version of this called ‘Vital Bonds' was aired last year across Canada by the CBC's David Suzuki's 'The Nature of Things'. An edited version called ‘Transplanting Hope' has been aired across the USA as part of PBS. This movie is helping to raise awareness about organ donation.

Government pension funds are in bad shape, and taxpayers could take the hit to make good on the financial shortfalls. Could your taxes be going up?

In the era of big tech, groundbreaking technological innovation has given rise to an increasingly efficient and methodical society. But these advances are not without consequence, as unbounded technological growth demands control over how we work, think, consume and communicate. Our panelists say too many have accepted biased algorithms, job-displacing robots, and surveillance-based capitalism as an inexorable cost of innovation, giving a powerful few the reins over our evolving society. Technologists, the venture capitalists who fund them, and the politicians who allow for this unregulated growth have stepped into the seat of power, often prioritizing technological optimization and efficiency over fundamental human values. System Error, authored by three Stanford professors, offers an alternative to this dystopian vision of a world controlled by big tech. Armed with the combined knowledge of philosopher Rob Reich, a leading thinker at the intersection of technology and ethics, political scientist and former Obama staffer Jeremy Weinstein, as well as the director of Stanford's undergraduate computer science program Mehran Sahami, System Error reveals how big tech can be held to account for the power it wields over our society.

The Ford Foundation: While created by a famed family of arch-capitalists, for decades the institution—long, though likely no longer, the largest private foundation in the country—has been the financial backbone of the radical left. And now some are proposing taking radical action to counter its influence; Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Ohio J.D. Vance spitballed on Tucker Carlson's Fox News program: “Why don't we seize the assets of the Ford Foundation, tax their assets, and give it to the people who've had their lives destroyed by the radical open borders agenda?” Joining me to discuss what to do about the Ford Foundation and the broader Big Philanthropy is my colleague Mike Hartmann, director of Capital Research Center's Center for Strategic Giving and co-editor of the Philanthropy Daily Giving Review blog.
