What is a Philanthropist?

A person who gives of their time or money for the betterment of mankind is considered a philanthropist. It doesn’t matter whether you are the person at the food kitchen preparing meal, working with a women’s shelter, or helping out with toys for tots all of these activities are giving back to your community for the enrichment of your fellow man. Many people only think of those individuals who have the financial means to donate large amounts of money to causes as a philanthropist but where we would be without all the people who volunteer their time to make difference.
