Cultures of Giving
‘Say the word ‘philanthropist and most people envision wealthy, Caucasian do-gooders writing large checks in the millions.’ This vision however is incorrect as philanthropy is given a broader meaning with a wider base of participants. Some interesting points:
- Communities of color have traditionally received smaller percentages of philanthropic dollars while having a greater need.
- Giving from the Latino and African American population increases, with African Americans giving away on average 25% more of their income then their white counterparts.
The entire report is lengthy so we have therefore included the link to the executive summary. Enjoy!
