To find the keys to becoming a philanthropist, no matter your financial means, let’s take a deeper look at the question, “What is a philanthropist?”
Let’s start with the philanthropist meaning straight from the dictionary:
noun: philanthropist; plural noun: philanthropists
1. a person who seeks to promote the welfare of others, especially by the generous donation of money to good causes.
In short, a philanthropist is someone who donates their money, experience, time, talent or skills to help others and create a better world. Though we often think of them as people who have millions of dollars to donate, you don’t have to be a famous philanthropist with a huge net worth to qualify. This is just one of a few misconceptions about how to be a philanthropist.
