“That’s what I consider true generosity: You give your all, and yet you always feel as if it costs you nothing.” – Simone de Beauvoir
Recent times have witnessed a huge transformation in ways of giving to charities. This is due to the ever increasing number of crowdsourcing websites and innovative fundraising solutions such as mobile apps and donations through text messages. This modern culture of giving is new and is certainly a better way of getting people to give as it encourages many to do their bit towards meaningful causes. Charities cannot however depend on these new and modern methods alone for substantial donations. They should therefore continue working with major donors, but also leverage these modern methods to motivate and involve the newer generation in the philanthropic endeavors of the present times.
As modern philanthropists, we are big believers of the saying “small drops make a sea” as even small contributions, financial as well as other support gestures go a long way in bringing major and permanent changes in the community. Modern philanthropists should be prepared to take up at least one important social cause and strive hard to bring a positive change in the society. Modropy created a platform to connect concerned citizens with the great causes of our time. It gives the opportunity for philanthropists to make a significant positive impact by raising capital and awareness for their favorite cause through the use of social media.
