The Purposeful Philanthropy Foundation's programs are designed to advance the public's understanding of how their giving, when done in an informed and intentional way, can lead to sustainable change in their communities.
THE KNOWLEDGE INITIATIVE
Great minds build great communities. Through research, studies and journal publication, the Purposeful Philanthropy Foundation will help maintain an understanding of the history, trends and future of giving.
PEN AND MICROPHONE
The public consumes endless news and views. The foundation wants to help the general public understand what giving means through the use of media outlets. The information avenue of this initiative includes:
Editorials and commentaries, and
THE GIVING FORUM
Public forums are highly effective ways of educating communities. The foundation engages communities through talks, lectures and panel discussions where they can hear directly from experts and philanthropists.
