"Philanthropy is a highly individual decision since it not only reflects a person's values, but is formed by personal history, family experience, religious and ethic affiliation and the charitable work of colleagues, friends and family," said TIGER 21 President Tommy Gallagher.
"We are a learning group at heart, so it's not surprising that education is a high priority for many of our members," Mr. Gallagher
"On one hand, you yearn for some sort of visible legacy of your generosity, even though your heart knows that doing good works is its own reward," said Mr. Gallagher
, adding, "In the end there is no such thing as bad philanthropy, whether you give money anonymously or posthumously.
Said Mr. Gallagher
: "If we succeed as a group in boosting the returns of our members, they, in turn, appear uniformly resolved in giving something back in charity."
