Quote from Chad:

“Philanthropy is derived from the Greek, ‘for the love of mankind,’ and is about a desire to promote the welfare of others. That means more than just giving. In our profession, we are responsible for more than just fundraising; engagement and volunteerism are part of philanthropy and increase the joy of giving.”
