Editor’s Note: The National Center is delighted to partner in 2013 with the Bridgespan Group to feature videos from its Conversations with Remarkable Givers series. For our March edition in this series, we share Bridgespan’s interview with Carrie Avery, president of The Durfee Foundation and board chair of the National Center for Family Philanthropy.
