Why Others? Philanthropy as Opportunity

Abstract

Why Others?  summarizes the many questions which individuals and families need to ask themselves when turning to philanthropy.  Why should I give?  To whom? What for? How much?  Alone or with my family?  Each case is different of course, but there are principles which are valid for any giving.  The art of giving, consists both in meeting the needs of the beneficiaries and in fulfilling the expectations of the donors who are giving their time or money.  Why Others?  is written to help you to discover philanthropy for what it is: a means to shape a better future by acting in the present.
