Abstract

Philanthropy is usually taken to involve private individuals donating their resources – whether time, money, or property – voluntarily for the public good (Payton, 1988). Philanthropy has a history that stretches back thousands of years, but both the scale and manner of philanthropic giving have changed significantly since the turn of the millennium. CNN founder Ted Turner’s 1997 decision to donate $1 billion to the United Nations and his widely publicized criticisms of other billionaires for not doing more are often thought to have incited changes that led to Bill Gates and others committing to massive programs of giving to promote global health (Callahan, 2017).
