Philanthropy is the act of donating money, goods, services, time and/or effort to support a socially beneficial cause, with a defined objective and with no financial or material reward to the donor. Although such individuals are often rich, people may perform philanthropic acts without possessing great wealth.
Philanthropy is the act of giving some type of resource that, in the end, betters someone or something. A kind act. Even if the gift is small, the meaning and spirit behind it is huge.
