Doing the right thing for humanity … Better

“To give away money is an easy matter, and in any man’s power. But to decide to whom to give it, and how large and when, and for what purpose and how, is neither in every man’s power, nor an easy matter.”

ABOUT KEN GIBSON

Ken Gibson is a philanthropist committed to creating opportunities for people to live fulfilling lives and to make the world a better place. He is one hundred percent Irish, yet truly global. His work extends across four continents. Ken is equally at home in his native Dublin or navigating the rural villages of India. He has dined with royalty yet is equally privileged to have shared food with families in some of the world’s worst slums. He is as comfortable in corporate boardrooms as sitting in the doorways that the world’s poorest people call ‘home’. Ken is firmly committed to fighting disease, poverty and injustice.

What is the difference between philanthropy and charity?

Charity comes from the Latin word ‘caritas’ meaning love of humanity. Philanthropy comes from ancient Greek and also translates as ‘love of humanity’. At heart, both words represent a deep seated desire to make the world a better place.

In common usage, the words have come to represent different things. Charity is generally understood to mean reaching out to address an immediate need. Philanthropy is concerned with the longer term. Quite often the difference is explained in terms of giving a hungry person a fish (charity) or teaching someone the skills to fish for themselves (philanthropy). Both charity and philanthropy are important; people who are hungry today need to be fed today. But, by teaching people and communities to provide for their own needs reduces the prospect of people facing hunger in the future.

Philanthropy differs from charity in that it concerns the elimination of social problems rather than simply focusing on the elimination of the suffering caused by social problems.
