Definitions

The question of what constitutes giving is going to be a topic I expect I’ll continue to return to. For now, my definition is what is offered and contributed without financial compensation; my time, money and energy minus monetary reward.

Because so many of us, myself included, give to others as part of our jobs, it can feel like we’re depleted in the giving department when it comes to our “own time.” I’m going to name the giving we do during work  Contractual Giving.

    A visitor to Israel attended a recital and concert at the Moscovitz
    Auditorium. He was quite impressed with the architecture and the acoustics.
    He inquired of the tour guide, “Is this magnificent auditorium named after
    Chaim Moscovitz, the famous Talmudic scholar?” “No,” replied the guide.
    “It is named after Sam Moscovitz, the writer.” “Never heard of him. What did he write?”
    “A check”, replied the guide.

  2. You’ve brought up one of the aspects of philanthropy I want to explore on this blog: giving to get.
