Gateway Giving Podcast Features Youth In Need

Youth In Need was featured last month in the Gateway Giving podcast, a show about philanthropy in and around the St. Louis region. David Foster, a certified financial planner, chartered advisor in philanthropy and founder of Gateway Wealth Management, interviewed Youth In Need’s Demetria Lightfoot from the perspective of a prospective donor and offered insight on how to make the greatest impact with your charitable donations.

Demetria has worked at Youth In Need for nearly four years but was recently promoted to the Director of Philanthropy, where she is working on building relationships with individual donors who are passionate about investing in the children, youth and families Youth In Need serves. Connect with Demetria at or 636-757-9338, and listen to her on the podcast.
