The Game – 269 – Carolyne Zinko

As individual wealth grows on the Peninsula, who are emerging as the leaders in innovative giving and solving our community’s problems?

We hear about former 49ers who are looking out for their teammates and a lineup of philanthropists who are thinking globally and acting locally. The Game is Giving. The Game is on.

The longstanding criticism of Silicon Valley is that it does not give – that compared to other areas with similar wealth and economic status, this region lags behind in philanthropic donations. But it may be that the giving here is low-profile and quiet, with an emphasis on the good works, rather than garnering attention.

In this time of year, when, as Dickens wrote, want is most keenly felt, a Peninsula magazine, Modern Luxury Silicon Valley, is out with an issue focused on philanthropy and we are joined by the Editor in Chief, Carolyn Zinko, to talk about Silicon Valley giving and some local efforts that belie the reputation.
