An author’s reminder: Philanthropy isn’t defined by money


AP Business Writer

Philanthropy, Lucy Bernholz says, is like Chex Mix. It has a lot of different components, but they all contribute to making the party favorite tasty. For her new book “How We Give Now: A Philanthropic Guide for the Rest of Us,” Bernholz traveled America speaking mainly to groups of low income and working class people who donate their time, money and other resources, including online data about themselves. She found no shortage of commitment to philanthropy from those operating giving circles, donating time at food banks or, as the volunteers of Safe Passage have done for more than a decade, making sure kids get to and from school safely through San Francisco’s Tenderloin District.
