synopsis
The act of giving takes many forms. It can be as informal as babysitting for a neighbor or assisting the coach of a little league baseball team. It can also be more formal acts such as venture or institutional philanthropy. What Is Philanthropy? holistically demonstrates and discusses philanthropy through the compelling stories of various people, highlighting their perspectives and environments. From well-known celebrities to the 'everyday jane or joe', millions of people across this country donate their time, money or expertise to the causes they deem important and worthy of their resources. Every day we're somehow touched by philanthropy such as getting care at a nonprofit hospital, attending higher education, enjoying a wildlife sanctuary, or receiving a simple, kind act from a neighbor who is paying it forward. Yet with all this history, growth and attention, philanthropy is often misunderstood. What is it? How does it operate? Who plays a role in it? Why do people give? Why is it a vibrant part of our culture and society? And, why is it important for us to understand the answers to these questions? What about philanthropy is working well and not working well? This film will address these questions through its subjects and their stories. When we have a better understanding of philanthropy, we can better address society's crippling problems through citizen involvement.
