Philanthropy Is About Involvement
Here's one more piece of great advice from Eli Broad's book, The Art of Being Unreasonable:
"Philanthropy isn't just a pursuit for the wealthy. Philanthropy is about involvement. Pick your issue, work at it, and do your best to make things happen. Even if you're not wealthy, you have time, expertise, skills and other resources you may not even have realized that can be used to serve others."
