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.
