One of the greatest joys for anyone should be giving charity – and the fact that it is such a fundamental tenet of Judaism is a great statement about our people.  There are so many reasons to give – and wanted to provide some inspirational quotes about the purpose of giving to encourage others:

  • “Philanthropy is involved with basic innovations that transform society, not simply maintaining the status quo or filling basic social needs that were formerly the province of the public sector.” David Rockefeller
  • “My theme for philanthropy is the same approach I used with technology: to find a need and fill it.” An Wang
  • “The results of philanthropy are always beyond calculation.” Miriam Beard
  • “Never respect men merely for their riches, but rather for their philanthropy; we do not value the sun for its height, but for its use.” Gamaliel Bailey
  • “Give, give and give more – it changes this life and the rest of the world.” Ron Hershco
  • “What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.” Albert Pike
  • “Is the rich world aware of how four billion of the six billion live? If we were aware, we would want to help out, we’d want to get involved.” Bill Gates
  • “How wonderful that no one need wait a single moment to improve the world.” Anne Frank
  • “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead
  • “It is every man’s obligation to put back into the world at least the equivalent of what he takes out of it.” Albert Einstein

No matter what your favorite cause is – give to it in time, money and more. I am proud the Ronn Torossian Foundation gives charity annually – and love to hear your inspirational quotes.
