Philanthropy

Philanthropy etymologically means “love of humanity” in the sense of caring for, nourishing, developing, and enhancing “what it is to be human”—on both the benefactors’ (by identifying and exercising their values in giving and volunteering) and beneficiaries’ (by benefitting) parts. The most conventional modern definition is “private initiatives, for public good, focusing on quality of life” (see below).
