Turning Passion into Action: Giving While Living
The Atlantic Philanthropies,
Like their founder, Charles "Chuck" Feeney, The Atlantic Philanthropies believes that we must address the urgent social inequities and injustices of our time without delay. Turning Passion into Action: Giving While Living describes the growing trend of Giving While Living, shares the stories of some of the philanthropists who, like Mr. Feeney, are giving generously in their lifetimes, and offers some tips and resources for those who may be interested in embarking on a program of Giving While Living. The profiles in this publication demonstrate the wide range of factors that could motivate one to give. Of course, Giving While Living is just one of the ways in which high-net-worth individuals and families can choose to engage in philanthropy, and it isn’t for everyone. Many of the questions, suggestions, stories and resources referenced in this publication are relevant and inspiring to any strategic philanthropist, not just those committed to Giving While Living.
