Mission, Giving Back
Business is business…we all know this. But what
opens our eyes and allows us to recognize a true philanthropic
spirit is a clear dedication to make “giving
back” less of a fashion statement and more of
a truly genuine effort to improve the lives of others.
Whether it is through educational grants, direct support,
or a wide range of other philanthropic avenues, these
individuals, families and foundations/organizations
have displayed a tremendous track record of success
and a real focus on giving back through their accumulated
wealth. This is how one truly makes their money work
for them and others.
word "philanthropy" comes from Greek.
The root word "anthrop" means "human"
while "phil" or "philo" is aligned
with "love." As such, philanthropy is
a gesture of an organization's love for humanity.
In practice, philanthropy has the goal of influencing
the well-being of humankind through charitable efforts
and the act of giving to the community. Philanthropy
is therefore not new, but in today’s tougher
times, it is more important than ever. The number
of applicable philanthropic causes has unfortunately
risen to epic levels.
With our website, we look to acknowledge the tremendous
philanthropic efforts of a variety of New York-based
individuals, families and foundations. In addition,
we want to draw attention to the many foundations
that have been created to assist the underserved
both in the US and overseas. More regionally, we
also included a charity list that allows interested
parties to first identify and then make direct connections
with whatever entities they choose to show particular
this website, we do not ever look to promote one
particular cause over another. Our information is
presented in a strictly impartial manner, specifically
for this purpose.
