I’m  inspired these days by people who surprise me, such as the individual who gives generously even with a small salary or people whose compassion and sincerity may shine brightest while they’re volunteering. These small acts restore your faith in humanity and remind you why you give.

Jacqueline Novogratz inspires me. She founded Acumen Fund, which, in their words, is a venture capital fund for the poor.  They don’t look to make VC like returns, but rather provide “patient capital” to entrepreneurs looking to make large changes in challenged regions.  I really hope that someday I can run a fund like she does.

These building blocks required for economic improvements are so simple. You start with food – the way you stay alive. Everything follows from that – education, professional, and family –  none of that can happen on an empty stomach…

Why We Give tells stories of ordinary philanthropists, making a difference, dollar by dollar and hour by hour.
