Ebonie Johnson Cooper discusses how collaboration is essential to doing the most good.
Ebonie Johnson Cooper—founder of the Young, Black & Giving Back Institute—talks about tapping into the frequently neglected market of millennial donors and diversifying our own conceptions of philanthropy.

Giving has a lot to do with our upbringing.
