CALGARY, AB, Sep. 23 /CSRwire/ - Benevity, Inc., the global leader in online workplace giving, matching, volunteering and grant management solutions, recently hosted the second official Benevity Nonprofit Community Council meeting to discuss how to create greater outcomes and efficiencies in the donor-to-charity...

Such an institution allowed Rockefeller’s fortune to be directed toward grand ambitions, as expressed in the phrase that graced the foundation’s charter: “the promotion of the well-being of mankind.” Philanthropy increasingly came to be associated with these expansive ends and in the process, moved farther away from small-scale, proximate encounters with distress, from retail giving, which became the exclusive purview of charity. 20 And so, both in theory and in practice, the new vocation of modern philanthropy required an active distancing from the traditional practice of charity.
