Happy National Philanthropy Day!

November 15, 2010

Happy National Philanthropy Day to those of you in Canada and the U.S. (and presumably elsewhere too?).

The Association of Fundraising Professionals has done a great job of celebrating charitable giving on this day every year.  In honor of the day, here are a couple of links to check out:

  • A list of the top 10 items you should consider donating instead of ditching.
  • A report by BMO Harris Private Banking showing that 76% of Canadians with more than $1 million in investable assets say it is important to them to give something back.  And, “59% of these affluent individuals haven’t let the recent recession affect their giving habits.”
  • A note from Pratham on President Barack Obama’s recent visit to India and meeting with social entrepreneurs.
