The Definition of Philanthropy, from Mary Baker Eddy

\”Philanthropy is loving, ameliorative, revolutionary\”

What a grand call on philanthropy from this 19th century author and spiritual leader.  Philanthropy is loving – but also corrective.  It ensures success.  It keeps us unselfish, and even uncovers evil.  And the goodness itself, the kind love of giving — not a placard on a building, not a name on a brochure — is the greatest gift.
