Most people care about their fellow neighbors, their environment, the arts, and/or animals. Most people also feel that they have a purpose on this earth and they want to make a difference but do not know how they can carry out that purpose.
Most people do not see themselves as a philanthropist. They feel only ultra-wealthy people can be a philanthropist. That is far from the truth. Anyone who shows goodwill to their fellow beings and makes an act or a gift for humanitarian purposes is a philanthropist. We can help you decide how to be the best philanthropist you can be!

Christine helped me realize that I never chose the organizations. I gave to the organizations that my friends cared about. I now allocate over 50% of my budget to organizations that are addressing issues that mean something to me.”
