Anonymous. An interesting word. An even more interesting concept.
There is someone out there, some one or some group of some ones, who is donating very large sums of money to colleges and universities. Millions. The donations are primarily aimed at scholarships for women and minorities… and are primarily gifted to public colleges and universities. All of these colleges/universities are led by women presidents.
The donor remains completely anonymous.
I like this anonymous person. I like the concept of anonymous giving. This type of giving is so selfless and, well… spiritual. I think it is faith-driven, as in both faith in one’s God and faith in humanity. Faith that this money will bring significance to our world through the choices of people who receive it.
And this brings me to a question. Actually, 3 questions:
1. If I had millions to donate, to whom or what would I give it?
2. If you had millions to donate, to whom or what would you give it?
3. Would both you and I donate anonymously?
I think I know the answer to mine. Well, I know that I would donate anonymously. But my answer is too long to write right now (I will answer my own question in my next post)… so I would love to hear your answer.
Think about it.
