PHILADELPHIA — A sizable percentage of high-net-worth givers do not see themselves as philanthropists even though each gives away about a million dollars or more annually.
That is among the findings of a study by the University of Pennsylvania’s Center for High Impact Philanthropy.
The CHIP study involved structured interviews with 33 anonymous high-net-worth individuals, each capable of giving $1 million annually.
