A Quote for the day:
Charity still matters a great deal. But it’s not enough—and charity is not philanthropy.
At its core, charity is about help, about meeting urgent needs. Philanthropy, though, is about change. Philanthropy is focused not on symptoms, but on root causes. It is systemic, not episodic; proactive rather than reactive. In short, the goal of philanthropy is not so much to provide assistance or service; rather, it seeks to permanently alter the conditions that make assistance necessary.
