Charitable Philanthropy and Social Entrepreneurship
Philanthropy or “love of humanity (etymologically speaking) “ is a word synonymous to Social Entrepreneurship but is not to be mistaken with. Philanthropy deals with donations. The outstanding difference in the two to notice is that philanthropists donate money to foundations and/or causes with money from their personal wealth while social entrepreneurs start businesses to fund a cause or foundation. An example of this is if person A, a rich trillionaire decides to donate or give 100 billion dollars to “Terrance Jacksons’ Christmas fund Foundation” earning him or her, honorable title, philanthropist,. Person B, a social entrepreneur, begins a business (big or small) to raise money to fund “Terrance Jacksons’ Christmas fund Foundation”. Both are awesome titles but it isn’t a competition between the two of them, the goal is to help the cause or foundation as they often work together rather than apart to help more than they could alone.
Today’s young people are as concerned with making a positive impact on the world as they are with making money. A whopping 94% want to use their skills to benefit a cause. Meanwhile, only half of Americans have confidence in the free market system, down from 80% just 15 years ago.
Against this backdrop, social enterprise has taken off as a new formula for success, combining capitalism with a do-gooder mentality. These self-funding, for-profit businesses also have a mission to tackle global issues such as alleviating hunger, improving education, and combatting climate change. To achieve their high-minded goals, the companies might fund specific programs, partner with governments or existing philanthropic entities, or follow a one-for-one donation model, and work on either the local or international level.
