On Faith On Philanthropy: Explorations into the Impact of the World's Religions on Why We Give
"On Faith On Philanthropy: An Interfaith Discussion about Why We Give" will be a timely, moderated conversation that will form bridges of understanding between faiths about philanthropy as a core value.
This highly interactive session between panelists from three of the world's great religions, Islam, Christianity and Judaism and the audience, will be moderated by noted author and On Faith blogger, Sally Quinn. Audience members will take away a better understanding of commonalities and differences in beliefs about giving's importance as an expression of faith and faith's importance as a motivator of giving.
