WE Help Everyday Philanthropists



and support to the causes they care most about


Everyday Philanthropists are ordinary people wanting 

to lend a hand, leave a legacy or pass on family values, 

change the worldl or just make a difference by contri-

buting to solutions. They are individuals, families,

businesses and groups of people who want to disrupt

the status quo to address pressing issues and challenges

their community, their neighbors or their homeland face.

They are agents of change in their own community or

in the global community of mankind. They are men and 

women of all ages, business owners and entrepreneurs,

retirees, celebrities and athletes who want to become

engaged philanthropists to assure their donations of

money, knowledge, time, talent, skills and voice have

an impact; they are people who want to maximize their

financial resources and other assets such as business and

professional contacts and acumen, relationships, and

goodwill. This is where Philanthropy Strategies Global

Consulting is most effective in maximizing the giving

power of  Everyday Philanthropists to achieve meaning-

ful results. We are successful in these endeavors by 

educating, equipping and empowering our clients to

achieve their intended philanthropic outcomes.

creating a culture of giving among Millenials and other

young adults when they become philanthropists themselves.

how to help; likewise, having the money to

help is not the same as knowing how to spend

money in a helpful way."   Michael Quinn Patton
