Event Details

Join Bolder Giving on Thursday, November 17th at noon EST for a free teleconference with Nyla Rogers


Nyla Rodgers turned the grief of her mother’s sudden death from ovarian cancer into an opportunity to help thousands in Sub-Saharan Africa. Instead of listening to the cautions of family and friends, Nyla used her modest inheritance to start Mama Hope, an organization inspired by her trip to Kenya. There she saw her mother’s philanthropic legacy in the orphan and micro-finance program that she had sponsored. Mama Hope partners with community organizations to fund high impact, cost effective projects that improve access to food, water, education, and health care. Nyla’s bold and inspiring response to the loss of her mother has resulted in a non-profit organization that has helped over 76,000 people in Kenya, Tanzania, Ghana and Uganda. 


Bold Conversations is a monthly phone discussion hosted by Anne Ellinger, co-founder of Bolder Giving ( Each month you can join a conversation with an extraordinary giver who will share strategies, challenges, and excitement about their giving.


The format of each Bold Conversation is a 60 min. free teleconference call.  Anne and the featured guest talk, pausing frequently for questions and comments from listeners.  We aim for an informal, interactive, and frank discussion where listeners apply lessons to their own giving. You can also listen to archived conversations and join online chats with Bold Givers hosted by the Chronicle of Philanthropy.

No matter what your level of giving or the causes you give to, you’ll gain nuggets of wisdom you can apply to your own situation, and be energized by Charlie Rounds's commitment and vision.

Bolder Giving

Bolder Giving's mission is to inspire and support people to give at their full lifetime potential. We promote three ways to give boldly.

  • Give more: The average giving in the U.S. is 2-3% of annual income. We help those who can afford it to take quantum leaps further.
  • Risk more: Many people are in an uninspired giving rut. We invite people to be more adventurous, strategic, and involved.
  • Inspire more: Most people rarely talk about their giving. We support people to step out, start conversations, and to inspire others about the joy of giving.
