Religious Generosity And Giving: Expressions Which Formed The Foundations of Modern Day Philanthropy And Its Advising Professional Field.
Presenter: Scott Preissler, The Center On Stewardship And Generosity

This highly engaging powerpoint and personally motivated presentation will present historic motivational roots which synergized faith and philanthropic generosity traditions in religious American History.

Of particular interest will be the pictoral presentations with detail narration of over 40 historic religious giving artifacts and the stories which give voice to how these devices were used in the earliest days of American philanthropy. Many of these devices and the motivations behind them formed the innovative trends in family and corporate giving we experience today.

The presenter owns and will share from his family personal $4 million dollar collection on philanthropic artifacts, art, and stewardship.

Engaging connections in the presentation will clearly help AIP members to understand early faith and philanthropy concepts and connections which led to our modern day era as Advisors In Philanthropy.
