What is PHILANTHROPY? What does PHILANTHROPY mean? PHILANTHROPY meaning & definition. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Philanthropy means etymologically, the love of humanity, in the sense of caring, nourishing, developing, and enhancing what it means to be human. In this meaning, it involves both the benefactor in their identifying and exercising their values, and the beneficiary in their receipt and benefit from the service or goods provided. A conventional modern definition is "private initiatives, for public good, focusing on quality of life," which combines an original humanistic tradition with a social scientific aspect developed in the 20th century. The definition also serves to contrast philanthropy with business endeavors, which are private initiatives for private good, e.g., focusing on material gain, and with government endeavors, which are public initiatives for public good, e.g., focusing on provision of public services. A person who practices philanthropy is called a philanthropist. Philanthropy has distinguishing features from charity; not all charity is philanthropy, or vice versa, though there is a recognized degree of overlap in practice. A difference commonly cited is that charity aims to relieve the pain of a particular social problem, whereas philanthropy attempts to address the root cause of the problem—the difference between the proverbial gift of a fish to a hungry person, versus teaching them how to fish. The literal, classical definitions and understandings of the term philanthropy derive from its origins in the Greek ???????????, which combines the word ????? (philos) for "loving" and ???????? (anthropos) for "human being" (see below). The most conventional modern definition is "private initiatives, for public good, focusing on quality of life". This combines the social scientific aspect developed in the century with the original humanistic tradition, and serves to contrast philanthropy with business (private initiatives for private good, focusing on material prosperity) and government (public initiatives for public good, focusing on law and order). These distinctions have been analyzed by Olivier Zunz, and others. Instances of philanthropy commonly overlap with instances of charity, though not all charity is philanthropy, or vice versa. The difference commonly cited is that charity relieves the pains of social problems, whereas philanthropy attempts to solve those problems at their root causes (the difference between giving a hungry person a fish, and teaching them how to fish).

Google Tech Talk July 12, 2010 ABSTRACT Presented by Christine Sherry. Anyone who has tried to give away money faces the question of how to evaluate a request for proposal for funds. How do you know that the group or the idea is one that you should support? This tech talk is designed for Googlers who want to be more effective and strategic in reviewing grant proposals for funding. It is designed for two groups of people: (1) those who want to know more about what to look for as they make choices in their personal philanthropy and (2) Googlers who want to submit a good grant proposal to the Google Corporate Giving Council for funding. Whatever your interest, this tech talk will guide you through what to look for in grant proposals. We will review the elements of a good proposal, criteria you can use to evaluate the proposal and the idea behind it, and what kinds of red flags that suggest you should not fund. We will also have some hands-on practice sessions to sharpen your skills in reviewing proposals. Whether you are entirely new to this process or more experienced in philanthropy, this practical session taught by a leading local expert will demystify the process of grant review and help you make smarter choices with philanthropic dollars. Christine Sherry leads her own philanthropic advising practice (http://www.sherryconsulting.com) and has spent the last decade teaching adults how to be more effective and strategic in philanthropy. She was the Founding Director of the Philanthropy Workshop West, a donor education program co-sponsored by the Hewlett, Rockefeller and TOSA Foundations that educated over one hundred major donors. In that capacity, she worked closely with a number of current and former Google executives. Christine now advises individuals and foundations on how to develop and refine a philanthropic strategy, guides them through the development of a giving plan that makes sense, and assists with other aspects of their philanthropy, including due diligence. Her clients include both individual philanthropists, both newer and more experienced, newer foundations, and established foundations like Skoll and Virgin Unite. Christine previously was Vice President and General Counsel of SRI International and had a thirty year career in law, policy and board leadership. She has served on numerous nonprofit boards, currently chairs the Long Range Planning Committee of the San Francisco Ballet, and will teach a course in the fall in the Stanford Continuing Studies program called " Giving Wisely." She graduated from Stanford University and the University of California School of Law ; she and her husband live in Portola Valley and have three grown children.

This study of his philanthropy, painstakingly recorded in four decades of charitable account books, give a nuanced picture of both the man himself and the landscape of charitable causes across the mid nineteenth century. In this 40 year period, Overstone's over 2,900 charitable donations fall naturally into six domains: donations relating to religious causes (mainly but not exclusively relating to the Church of England); donations relating to welfare and educational causes (particularly relating to these hospitals where he was a committee members); donations relating to art and cultural causes; donations relating to specific geographic localities which he had an attachment; donations relating to domestic and international incidents or crises; and finally donations to individuals (which included staff, family and friends).

Speaker(s): Dweep Chanana, Anwar Hasan,Shiv Nadar Chair: Ruth Kattumri Recorded on 21 February 2012 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building. mp3 audio podcast available here - http://www2.lse.ac.uk/newsAndMedia/videoAndAudio/channels/publicLecturesAndEvents/player.aspx?id=1360 Mr Dweep I. Chanana is a Director of Philanthropy & Values-based Investing at UBS AG. For the past five years he was responsible for advising clients in Africa, Asia, Israel, Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. He previously managed the UNDP's Growing Sustainable Business initiative in Kenya and worked in the telecommunications industry. Dweep serves as mentor to a number of social enterprises and is co-founding Benefiit, a peer network of professional impact investors. UBS recently concluded a study of family philanthropy in Asia. The study revealed interesting insights into the evolution and state of philanthropy in Asia, and particularly India. Dweep will share some of the findings of the study, including some lesser known and possibly unexpected facets of philanthropy in the region. He will also draw comparisons to the practice of philanthropy globally, in the past and today. Mr Anwar Hasan is the Managing Director of Tata Limited in London. He joined the Tata Group in 1963 in Calcutta with Tata Steel. After holding several executive positions with Tata Steel he was appointed Managing Director of Tata Limited in 1999. Mr Hasan will speak about the Tata model of philanthropy. The founders of Tata had initiated and sustained a tradition of bequeathing much of their personal wealth to the many trusts they have created for the greater good of India and its people. Thus they created an extraordinary saga of philanthropy that has enriched India and its citizens across a century. Today the Tata trusts have come to control 66 per cent of the shares of Tata Sons, the holding company of the group. The wealth that accrues from this asset supports an assortment of causes, institutions and individuals in a wide variety of areas. The trusteeship principle governing the way the group functions casts the Tatas in a rather unique light: capitalistic by definition but socialistic by character. The Tata Group was awarded the Carnegie Medal of Philanthropy in 2007 in recognition of the group's long history of philanthropic activities. Mr Shiv Nadar is Founder and Chairman of HCL Technologies and the Shiv Nadar Foundation. He founded HCL in the mid 1970s, which today is a $6 billion global enterprise with 90,000 professionals from diverse nationalities, who operate from 31 countries including over 500 points of presence in India. Shiv Nadar was conferred the Padma Bhushan - the third highest civilian honour, awarded by the President of India. Forbes Magazine featured Shiv Nadar in its list of 48 Heroes of Philanthropy in the Asia Pacific region in 2011. Mr Nadar will speak on Creative Philanthropy as a model for building spirals of inspiration. Shiv Nadar Foundation is engaged in empowering people through primary, secondary and higher education and transform lives. Creative Philanthropy is modelled on the principle of building institutions of excellence in education for long-term high impact socio-economic transformation and creating spirals of inspiration & concentric circles of impact and outreach. Mr Nadar posits that the potential outcome of creative philanthropy is its differentiated high impact approach that creates individuals as catalysts of transformation for many others. Dr Ruth Kattumuri is Co-Director, LSE India Observatory.
