"What is Philanthropy?" Movie Screening
Free and open to all OU students! The OU Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals is sponsoring a screening of "What is Philanthropy?" This documentary is designed to enhance the American public's understanding of the concept of philanthropy, and provide concrete and diverse examples of its role in culture and society. In addition, there is what some might call a 'dark side' of philanthropy. Motivations for giving are sometimes questioned for reasons of politics, reputation, narcissism, and even social control. This documentary addresses these questions and issues. Ultimately, it will challenge and motivate the audience to reflect and think creatively about how it can give back. After film festivals and public television broadcasts, the film will be used in higher education and K-12 schools as a teaching and learning tool.
