Ken Blanchard - Philanthropy - Power - Life - Belief

My father, a bookkeeper who never earned more than $11,000 a year in his life, sat there, writing out a $25 check to the NAACP. When I asked him why, he said discrimination against anyone is discrimination against us all. And I never forgot that. Indeed, his philanthropy was a gift, not just to that organization, but to me.
Michael Bloomberg - Accounting - Philanthropy - Discrimination - Racism - Giving

To me, money is a means to do good. I reached a point in my life where I had enjoyed tremendous business success that afforded my family everything we could possibly want. My wife and I then decided that we could use our wealth to make a difference. So we created the Broad Foundations to do four things: to improve urban public education, to support innovative scientific and medical research, to foster art appreciation for audiences worldwide and to support civic initiatives in Los Angeles.
Eli Broad - Money - Business - Success - Philanthropy - Rich - Family - Wealth - Generous - Education - Research - Art

- Society - Wages - Capitalism - Charity

I've been busy for years, buying land, often under pseudonyms, and planting trees on it. All the money is going into it when I die.. and in the end I'd like to think that it will be 20 to 30,000 acres.
Felix Dennis - Philanthropy - Busy
- Environment - Charity - Inspirational - Generous

One of the great movements in my lifetime among educated people is the need to commit themselves to action. Most people are not satisfied with giving money; we also feel we need to work.

Peter Drucker
- Work - Philanthropy - Action

Melinda Gates - Help - Opportunity - Belief - Philanthropy - Life


It's really one of my all-time favorite things to do. To go out and really see the kids and visit the moms who are in these programs because I think I really get to see what happens on the ground and connect with them about what changes are that happen in their lives because of some of the giving that we're able to do.
Melinda Gates - Philanthropy - Change

The deed is everything, the glory naught.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe - Philanthropy - Success

Mark Victor Hansen - Philanthropy - Life


Every individual’s purpose in tithing is to open up his/her awareness of universal laws. Tithing opens you, to you. You are an unlimited individual, deprived of a fuller, richer life partly because of lack of the tithing experience and expression in life.
Mark Victor Hansen - Philanthropy - Life - Optimistic


As a tither you automatically become solution-oriented rather than problem-oriented.
Mark Victor Hansen - Philanthropy - Solutions - Problems


I've always said that the better off you are, the more responsibility you have for helping others. Just as I think it's important to run companies well, with a close eye to the bottom line, I think you have to use your entrepreneurial experience to make corporate philanthropy effective.
Carlos Slim Helu - Responsibility - Philanthropy
- Help - Entrepreneurial - Companies

My father used to say, “You can spend a lot of time making money. The tough time comes when you have to give it away properly.” How to give something back, that’s the tough part in life.
Lee Iacocca - Money - Philanthropy - Life

In business, you’re trying to make a buck. God was good to me and blessed me. I made some money and started this foundation years ago, and it has grown in size. With the foundation it’s a lot different, because the bottom line isn’t how you can make more money or get a better return, it’s helping the projects that you feel strongly about move forward.
Lee Iacocca - Business - Money - Philanthropy - God - Profits

I was fortunate to get a scholarship when I went to Lehigh University and Princeton. They were both wonderful schools. Somebody was kind enough to spend their money to educate people that they would never get to know. That’s what I think philanthropy is about.

John Mackey - Business - Long Term Investing - Philanthropy

Earlier in this century, philanthropy often flowed from the wills of dead industrialists. In recent decades, it's as likely to have come from a very alive business leader, entertainer, artist or sports star. The most effective of these patrons begin the process of giving by asking what they care about passionately.

In the four decades of philanthropy that have paralleled my business career, I’ve found that the same principles apply whether you’re providing access to capital to grow a business, creating a new paradigm for medical research, or pioneering innovative approaches to education: Empower the most talented people in each field and encourage them to pursue their passions.
Michael Milken - Philanthropy - Passions - Business - Career - Education - Power - Encouragement

When the idea came up, (Newman's Own) I said, "Are you crazy? Stick my face on the label of salad dressing?" And then, of course, we got the whole idea of exploitation and how circular it is. Why not, really, go to the fullest length, and the silliest length, in exploiting yourself and turn the proceeds back to the community?
Paul Newman - Business - Ideas - Branding - Philanthropy

Orhan Pamuk - Philanthropy - War

I don’t go looking for somewhere to spend my money. You can step on a tube of toothpaste for a week, if you have to. I spend what I need to and give it away.

Philanthropy is all about making a positive difference in the world by devoting your resources and your time to causes you believe in. In my case, I like to support causes where "a lot of good comes from a little bit of good," or, in other words, where the positive social returns vastly exceed the amount of time and money invested.
Jeff Skoll - Philanthropy - Positive - World - Belief - Social - Money - Change

I'm not doing my philanthropic work, out of any kind of guilt, or any need to create good public relations. I'm doing it because I can afford to do it, and I believe in it.

My foundations support people in the country who care about an open society. It's their work that I'm supporting. So it's not me doing it. But I can empower them. I can support them, and I can help them.
George Soros
- Encouragement - Philanthropy - Work

I wanted to win to feed the hungry people of my community. I didn't want to win to buy a diamond.. I didn't have no diamonds then. I didn't want to win to buy a car, I didn't want to win to bring a couple of chicks downtown to a hotel. I wanted to win to feed the poor people of the community.
Mr T - Values - Winning - Philanthropy - Poverty

How about no income tax at all on people over 65? People would continue working, remain healthier, not be an economic and social drain on society. Then the elderly would also have more disposable income to help charitable activities.
John Templeton - Philanthropy - Help - Tax - Economy

It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start.
Mother Teresa - Challenges - Love - Philanthropy - Family

Ted Turner - Philanthropy - Money - Rich

The world and life have been mighty good to me. And I want to put something back.
Ted Turner - Life - Philanthropy

I choose to rise up out of that storm and see that in moments of desperation, fear, and helplessness, each of us can be a rainbow of hope, doing what we can to extend ourselves in kindness and grace to one another. And I know for sure that there is no them.. there's only us.
Oprah Winfrey - Encouragement - Motivational - Fear - Philanthropy

Oprah Winfrey - Life - Philanthropy

Princeton has made an enormous difference in my life, and I am delighted to be able to express my gratitude in such a tangible way. The generosity of earlier generations of donors made it possible for me to attend Princeton as a young student from Hong Kong, and I have always wanted to do all I could to assure that students in the future.. from the United States and around the world.. will have the same kinds of opportunities I had to learn from faculty members who are leaders in their fields at a university that remains second to none in its commitment to teaching. (talking about his $100 million donation to Princeton University)
