Charity http://kwgs.org en On Philanthropy, Both Local and Global: A Discussion with Two Tulsa Experts on Giving with a Purpose http://kwgs.org/post/philanthropy-both-local-and-global-discussion-two-tulsa-experts-giving-purpose <p>What motivates a person --- or a business --- to make a philanthropic gift? And are such gifts more common or less common in this country than they were, say, a generation or two ago? What sorts of philanthropic gifts are most popular these days, and why? And how have things like the internet and the global economy changed philanthropic giving? Today on StudioTulsa, we're talking about philanthropy --- and about certain financial, economic, ethical, personal, and philosophical questions related to it --- with two local experts on this topic.

Or that more than 23% of the children in our state live in poverty? Or that more than 80% of the students in the Tulsa Public Schools qualify for the free and reduced-cost lunch program? Or that 17% of the residents in Tulsa County are &quot;food insecure&quot; --- meaning, they&#39;re unsure of where they&#39;ll get their next meal? On this installment of StudioTulsa, we hear about a new anti-hunger campaign in our community that kicked off just last month: Live Local, Give Local.

Father Dan is probably best known for creating the Tulsa-area social service agency, Neighbor for Neighbor, which still exists today.
