SPECIAL : Do Philanthropists Really C.A.R.E.?
In the December 2, 2013 issue of Forbes, Randal Lane published a detailed list of the 50 philanthropists who have given away the most money. After reviewing the data we asked ourselves, who actually C.A.R.E.S. the most, along with who was “Giving While Living” ? We looked at who was CONTRIBUTING, what causes they were ADOPTING, whether they were REORGANIZING their core businesses to support an issue, the degree to which they were personally ENGAGED in the process, and most importantly to the social entrepreneur, whether their social enterprise was SELF-SUSTAINING through the self-generation of profits; or could it still make an impact if philanthropic donations dried up. The results were are eye opening.
