Being Charitable Today

Why do we give, what do we give and does it really help?  This is the question at the heart of Steve Paikin’s roundtable interview about charitable giving.

The interview has many diverse perspectives, from various religious traditions, as well as societal responsibility. What makes these perspectives interesting is the discussion about the self-benefitting aspects of giving – that is it not just about doing good for others, but often our motivation is the good of our own person.

There is also a discussion on the difference between charity, philanthropy and social justice.
