What is Philanthropy?
Philanthropy is giving of your time, talents and treasures for the common good. Here at Rady Children’s, philanthropy is used to help sick and injured kids. We count on philanthropy to provide important services, programs and equipment, and to ensure that every child gets the care he or she needs. Watch our video to see how kids define philanthropy.
