Read to the end for your chance to win a book from the Tactical Philanthropy Bookstore or a gift to your favorite nonprofit.
In their fascinating study “I’m Not Rockefeller,” The Center for High Impact Philanthropy at the University of Pennsylvania showed that most high net worth philanthropists (defined in the study as people who gave over $1 million a year) said they did not identify with the word “philanthropist.”
So my question to you is what words do you identify with what is generally referred to as “philanthropy”? A couple to get things rolling:
I’d love to get your thoughts. Frankly, I’m open to made up words! Given my post from earlier suggesting that philanthropy is a blend of art and science, I’m interested particularly in words that manage to capture the multi-dimensional meaning of philanthropy.
From the suggestions that are submitted via a comment to this post, I’ll pick a winning entry and you can pick a book from the Tactical Philanthropy Bookstore as your prize or I’ll make a $25 gift to the nonprofit of your choice.
