Generosity: It's Not Just What You Give. It's How You Give.
DR. JOLLY SHARES INPIRATIONAL STORIES OF GIVING with youth.
The Barry Foundation's Philanthropy And Youth Conference recently hosted President & CEO Eric Jolly, Ph.D., as a guest speaker.
In this video message, Dr. Jolly shares where he finds his passion. He also tells stories that have shaped his life and forever altered his views on generosity. This includes how, as a child, he watched the exchange of five dollars between his father and a doctor. As an adult, he received the gift of a penny from a young girl.
"Real philanthropy isn't simply how much you give; it's how you give and how you leave the individual," he said, and continued, "Real philanthropy is a generosity of spirit that gives people something to treasure."
“ Real philanthropy isn't simply how much you give; it's how you give and how you leave the individual.”
