Philanthropy makes a difference.
“The [Portland High School JMG] Career Association organized a winter craft activity to do with the children staying at the [Barbara Bush Children’s] hospital. The students were immediately impacted by the courage of the patients, and the experience gave them a new perspective on how to handle problems that come up in the own lives. ”
From bake sales and wrapping paper catalogs to multi-million dollar capital campaigns, giving to a cause connects us with our communities and with each other. We build a stake in how problems are solved. We step in for each other when the government can’t. We are invested in solutions.
Defining and measuring this impact is important so we know the difference we can make
