‘A Better World Is Possible’ sounds a tad optimistic in light of the environmental, manmade and political disasters challenging the planet right now. It is the title of a book from businessman, politician and philanthropist David Sainsbury authored by science writer Georgina Ferry. It documents how his philanthropy has indeed impacted the world for the better.
We define philanthropy as the giving of resources in an engaged and strategic way for maximum impact and in a tax efficient manner. It can include the giving of money, assets, time, talent, voice and one’s social capital. We believe in the power of philanthropy as a great social connector and the source of many great opportunities.
