Welcome to the first episode of Season 4 of Fund the People - A Podcast with Rusty Stahl!

In this quick episode, host Rusty Stahl welcomes you back, and sets up the theme for an amazing new season!

Each season of this show has a theme, and together they follow the outline of our Funding that Works Framework.

  • Season 1 explored the problem facing the social sector as a deficit of investment in the nonprofit workforce.
  • Season 2 introduced the concept of Talent-Investing, “the intentional deployment of capital to support and develop nonprofit leaders and workers.”
  • Season 3 explored the 8 Principles of Talent-Investing. These principles offer the values and conceptual architecture upon which the practices of talent-investing can be built.

In Season 4, we’re diving into the 8 Practices of Talent-Investing. In this episode, you get three big ideas that encapsulate and organize the practices, and a synopsis of the 8 practices themselves.

We  invite you to enjoy our catalog of conversations from Seasons 1-3, plus our blog, toolkit, and other resources, here at
