Philanthropy

Philanthropy is the act of providing tangible gifts or monetary contributions to a charitable organization. Charitable organizations may be identified through an inter/national organization or by a strong connection to a local cause. Philanthropy events look different for each organization. Please check with your National organization for guidance and expectations for hosting a philanthropy event.
