Are you a philanthropist or a wannabe? The term philanthropist conjures up names like Gates, Rockefeller, and Buffet. In other words, BIG MONEY. That’s misleading. You don’t have to be a billionaire to be a philanthropist.
Being a philanthropist is about giving back to your community and the people who live here. Anyone can “give back” regardless of income bracket. Philanthropy means a voluntary giving of time and/or money to help others without expecting any type of reward in return.
