Sculpture, music, dance… those are arts. Chemistry, biology, physics… those are sciences. But, what’s philanthropy? And who are you, the philanthropist? Well, you’re both an artist and a scientist. Plus, you’re a part the long history of giving; people have been giving for centuries, in every country, at every income level, and in so many directions. So, how do you decide how to give?
In this session, you will learn some ideas about the art (stories about what recipients appreciate from funders) and the science (measurable trends from across the country) of philanthropy. We will also explore “The Golden Rule” of the art and science of philanthropy: how do we treat our neighbors (or funding recipients) as we treat ourselves, so that we can best help them do what they do best? We will also use some fun games and thought-exercises to get your artistic and scientist juices flowing!NOTE: Please download ourspecial discussion guidefor youth with adults for this session.
