Comments Off

All leaders achieve one of three levels: appointed, accepted and adored. An appointed leader does not have to earn a leadership position, but is assigned to it.

The word philanthropy is used more and more these days, but I’m not sure people really know what it means.
Most of us have thought of philanthropists as a privileged few – those of great wealth who put their fortunes into foundations to benefit future generations. We think of the Mellons, the Carnegies, the Penroses and others, and are grateful for the incredible good they have provided for our communities and country.
