Local vs. International Philanthropy

Kavita Ramdas, Global Fund for Women

Global Fund for Women CEO Kavita Ramdas talks about financial contributions for the greater good both locally and internationally – and that here in the US we give a very small percentage of our income to remedy the world's concerns. Ramdas cites the gap that exists between how much people think our government should be giving to global relief – 15-20 percent of our national income – but that less than 1% actually makes its way outside the United States.
