NWP Welcomes David Wertheimer. Mr. Wertheirmer oversees the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on family homelessness. David is also the board chair for @funderstogether and he joins us today on behalf of the Gates Foundation to discuss this issue and what we can do to make a difference. http://www.gatesfoundation.org
Our friend and co-trustee Warren Buffett once gave us some great advice about philanthropy: “Don’t just go for safe projects,” he said. “Take on the really tough problems.”
We couldn’t agree more. Our foundation is teaming up with partners around the world to take on some tough challenges: extreme poverty and poor health in developing countries, and the failures of America’s education system. We focus on only a few issues because we think that’s the best way to have great impact, and we focus on these issues in particular because we think they are the biggest barriers that prevent people from making the most of their lives.
We’re both optimists. We believe by doing these things—focusing on a few big goals and working with our partners on innovative solutions—we can help every person get the chance to live a healthy, productive life.

My name is Tammi Joyner
I am your Host for the Show
Today we are live from The Ford Foundation Atrium!
location: 320 E 43rd St – Take any of the trains in Grand Central Station
The building is a part of the public spaces open to the public!
Inside the building, a lush tropical garden on the ground level forms the focal point of an enormous and sunlit 10-story glass atrium. Amazingly, keeping this garden watered doesn’t deplete city utilities; the building’s roof captures rainwater, and during dry periods, the garden is kept healthy with a stored water supply.
Glancing up towards the roof, the greenery continues. Ferns and vines hang down from girders above, and small trees are visible from the top floors. The garden’s serene aura is aided by the fragrance of gardenias, and the sound of running water supplying a pool hidden amid the trees. The Ford Foundation was completed in 1967 and designated a national landmark in 1997.
It’s open to the public on weekdays from 10 AM to 4 PM.
