Driven by honest conversations with host Kristy Wolfe, it's a chance for passionated changemakers to share their story.

There is so much hard work and passion going into life-altering work in the nonprofit world. The foundation was looking for an avenue to give those voices a platformto share their purpose, hopes and dreams with the rest of us. That's how Give Amplify Connect was born.
