what is philanthropy?
"A philanthropist is anyone who gives anything - time, money, experience, skills, and networks - in any amount to create a better world." - Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen
The word philanthropy comes from the Greek word philanthropos, meaning "loving humankind."
Today, philanthropy is often viewed as a privilege for the wealthy and is usually equated to financial contributions. At Philanthropy Field Trips, we believe that anyone can be a philanthropist by giving to others in any capacity. Giving back to your community through gifts of time, talent and treasure, in any amount, demonstrates your love of humanity.
