    Volunteering – T’rumah

    Sh’mot 25 begins with a philosophy of philanthropy: “You shall accept gifts from any person whose heart so moves them”.

    Fundraising these days is far more complex. The motivations for giving involve all kinds of actual or implicit duress. It’s not an ordinary period of history and because the needs are so urgent one has to be more flexible in regard to the motivation of giving.

    But the best type of gift is still that which one gives because one wants to.

    Not only money. Volunteering has many forms. Personal support and service are indispensable.

    It’s not only our money that today’s causes require but our time and talents.
