Thanks to the good people at the National Philanthropic Trust, now you can take a journey online to learn about the history of modern philanthropy.
According to NPT’s blog, this is “a one-of-a-kind digital resource about the past 500 years of global philanthropy, launched at HistoryofGiving.org. The new digital exhibition, curated by NPT, highlights 200 moments in philanthropic history. More than 70 rare media assets, including documents, audio and video, illustrate these pivotal points in the history of giving.”
It’s truly fabulous and worth a look. Enjoy!
