Philanthropy means “love for humankind”. The word has its origins in the Greek “philos,” (loving) and “anthropos,” (humankind). Sometimes the words “philanthropy” and “charity” are used interchangeably but there is a difference. Charity actually refers to a short-term, empathetic response to an immediate problem or issue (for example, giving food to someone who is hungry), while philanthropy is a more strategic process of giving that tries to address the root causes of systemic issues and make the world a better place (for example, addressing the reason why someone is hungry).
Philanthropy is important because it aims to find long term solutions to problems in our world
Giving and sharing with others is so important, no matter how you do it.
Philanthropy is especially important because it help brings a better version of the world to life.
The work that Moorelands Kids does is philanthropic because we provide opportunities for kids to develop the skills and habits they need to succeed and build a better life for themselves. But not only that, our programs also encourage kids to become engaged citizens who care about their community. When they leave our programs, their influence has a ripple effect on the community in which they live. None of what we do would be possible without our amazing donors!
Philanthropy is important to society because it helps make change possible and creates a better place for us all to live in. When you give to initiatives, like Moorelands Kids’ programs, that promote opportunity and long-term solutions, you not only help those in need but your gift has a multiplying effect and benefits society as a whole. It’s a win-win situation!
Business and Philanthropy
Plus, philanthropy makes good business sense too! Spreading kindness and opportunity is important. It can create a ripple effect that makes a huge positive impact on the lives of those in need. But it can also help businesses thrive: Customers increasingly want to engage with companies that reflect their own values. Philanthropic giving shows that an organization cares about our world and that they are actively trying to improve it. In short, it makes a business more attractive to its customers!
