These are challenging times, but we are up to it.
For example, we had the idea to give money outright to people in need, and now some big foundations are doing likewise. Thus, we give money to nonprofit programs that serve the poor and they in turn can give direct cash to help families with rent, food, etc.
We are proud to be in the vanguard and regard it as business as usual; Philanthropic Ventures Foundation is over 30 years old.
We continue giving special grants to teachers and social workers on a 48 hour turnaround basis. Actually hundreds of grants, and the recipients love it.
It is warming to see the resilience of the people in nonprofits that we work with. They just double their efforts in serving people in need.
We are our brother's keeper and that is what Philanthropic Ventures Foundation stands for.
We are honored to be associated with a spectrum that covers outstanding community workers as well as those in need who we stand by.
We also ferret out start-up programs and people with ideas to serve others. The whole process of discovery is the basis of our work. In other words, we don't wait for the mail.
