Philanthropic Impact & Insight
Undoubtedly, your life has been improved by philanthropy. When you visit a hospital, attend a college or university, participate in a religious service, listen to community radio or experience the visual or performing arts, you benefit from philanthropy. From the Greek “love of mankind,” philanthropy represents the act of supporting the institutions and causes that to improve our quality of life. Can you imagine what our country would be like without the foresight of Andrew Carnegie and John D. Rockefeller? Today, Warren Buffet, Bill and Melinda Gates, Oprah and Mark Zuckerberg have all picked up the gauntlet. While we all may not be able to give to at the level of these noted philanthropists, everybody has the capacity to make a difference. Professional fundraisers help engage individuals and organizations in the philanthropic process.
