“Philanthropy for some people is not so hard. Some have more than they’ll ever use, so they give away
the excess. Many give only if everyone will applaud their charity and their quality of life won’t be
compromised. But there are also rare philanthropists like Agnes Gund who do difficult things: They use
resources to confront injustice and oppression; they seek to disrupt the status quo and pursue change
that not everyone values; they are ‘philactivists.’ And the world has never needed them more than it
does right now.”
