Our course has come to a close, but the lessons learned throughout its duration have been life changing. As a group, we explored the true meaning of philanthropy and how to efficiently pursue our dreams of helping the community improve. Both the qualitative and quantitative analysis’ are necessary when organizing a philanthropic project. The lessons regarding how to correctly perform such activities have truly enabled many of us with the skills necessary to continue our interest in this field. Nevertheless, I think the most important lesson drawn from this course was that each and every one of us can make a positive impact on our community. You don’t have to be rich to help others improve themselves. With organization and determination, we can achieve great things. This was evident during the field trip. Unfortunately, I couldn’t attend, but my class mates told me that the organizations we donated to were extremely grateful for our contributions. The looks on some of the peoples’ faces were priceless. So, philanthropy no longer means to me what it did at the beginning of the course. I no longer believe that it solely regards monetary contributions. Philanthropy connects us to each other as humans. Through it, we build the foundation for a better world, one in which we willingly extend a hand to those who need one. Money may matter to a certain extent, but what really makes a difference is the idea that, as motivated individuals, we can come together to make a huge impact.
