When I think about what I am about to announce, it brings me great joy and pleasure.  I feel compelled to provide you with a background to my announcement.  After many years of trying to find resources, great people and the time to complete this project, I am happy to present PURE PHILANTHROPY.  A FREE online fundraising resource tool designed to help charities gain more knowledge about philanthropy through engagement and collaboration.  In 2013 the first PURE PHILANTHROPY Conference was held to uncover gaps, opportunities and additional concerns in the world of philanthropy.  To enhance discussions, world and city leaders like Mallika Chopra, Martha Rogers, Hugh Evans, and John Tory attended our conference and shared their views on philanthropy.  Those discussions led to a discovery about hope and the need to come together collectively on a more regular basis to INSPIRE, SHARE and EDUCATE.

Now more than ever charities find themselves in a difficult situation.  Uncertain about the financial future of their respective organizations.  Charities are struggling to maintain services and are fearful of what their world will be like once the COVID-19 virus pandemic is over.  The talents of philanthropic leaders and professionals will be tested in the coming years.  More than ever, the need to find alternative sources of revenue and become more sophisticated in fundraising and philanthropy is undeniable.   PURE PHILANTHROPY provides the user with a platform to share ideas, share inspirational stories, and help each other grow stronger together.  The site offers a 24 hour a day/ 7 days a week chat forum; originally produced media content, and interesting philanthropic news, all in one location.  

Please visit Please ask others to visit the site.  Please ask others to share the site.  Please share the site on your social media platforms.  Please think about those charities who may not have access to great support, or may need help navigating these very difficult waters ahead.  

I would like to thank all my supporters, sponsors and great people on my PURE team who made this possible.  I look forward to the journey ahead and hope the PURE PHILANTHROPY site brings you and those charities you care about the support they need.

Melinda Gates once said, "Philanthropy is not about the money.  It's about using whatever resources you have at your fingertips and applying them to improving the world."  I ask you to make one of those resources.
