Join us for a virtual conversation with philanthropists from across the state of Connecticut who have identified a need and are "giving gifts of time, talent and treasure to make life better for others."

We often think that philanthropy requires long-term planning, large sums of up-front money, and a particular socioeconomic status to be considered a philanthropist. What is needed is a heart to give. The word "philanthropy" means “love of humanity.” It is the desire to promote the welfare of others, expressed mainly by the generous donation of money to good causes, but nowhere in that definition does it mention the amount of money required. You merely have to have a heart to give, and as the national Black Philanthropy Month theme states, the "fierce urgency of NOW!"
