Charles Koch Discusses His Approach to Philanthropy on The Tim Ferriss Show

Charles Koch, founder of the Charles Koch Foundation, was recently featured on The Tim Ferriss Show, a podcast selected as the “Best of” Apple Podcasts three years in a row. In his wide-ranging interview, Koch discusses his approach to philanthropy, his greatest influences, and the value of partnerships. Speaking on the inspiration behind his giving, Koch stated:

“I’ve been at this social change and philanthropic approach for 55 years now. And it was basically, I’d learned these principles that had transformed my life and enabled me to really realize my potential and accomplish more than I ever dreamed possible. And so, I had the desire to help as many others have the same kind of benefits, in their own way, to fit their own situation and gifts.”
