The Nonprofit World

Non-profit organizations play a significant role in the lives of Americans. In fact, 1 in 4 U.S. citizens volunteered with a non-profit in 2014. One of the best-known and most successful non-profits is the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, helping all people in the U.S. and developing countries lead healthy, productive lives. Olympia Trumbower is Program Manager in the Global Policy and Advocacy Division at the Gates Foundation, and joins us today to discuss the Foundation, and what it's like to have a career in the non-profit space.
