My mission is to encourage and nurture philanthropists.

And if Nancy Nordhoff is correct in stating that being a philanthropist is not “determined by the amount of money given, but by a generous heart giving as much as possible”, the key to philanthropy is strengthening the muscle of the generous heart. I believe a generous heart is joyful and willing, and over time it yearns to give more. So in order to strengthen that muscle, you need a formal practice for giving.

Philanthro∙be supports your giving by exploring and examining how to:
be informed about your resources and the needs of your community;
be intentional about how you spend your time and money;
be joyful in giving and receiving.

You are a philanthropist, and you have all that you need to make a difference.
