Many people think one has to be wealthy in order to be considered a “philanthropist.” Not true. The definition of a philanthropist is simply a person who seeks to promote the welfare of others, by the generous donation of money to good causes. Perhaps it’s that word “generous” that trips people up, because “generous” is often used synonymously with “sizable.”
George Resch writes a blog called I Found Money Today. George leaves $5 bills in random places around his city for other people to find, whenever he has a few bucks to spare. I’d call that philanthropy, and mighty generous, wouldn’t you?
