- What it meant to me was being paid by someone else to figure out how to spend their money philanthropically.Aug 15, 2012
- For a bit I thought the problem was word order, but I think the real problem is that people just don't think of it as an option. Philanthropic work sounds like the work you're doing is the philanthropy, not to fund the philanthropy. Professional philanthropy sounds like your job is to spend other people's money. I haven't thought of a good term so far.Aug 15, 2012
- I agree, I thought it meant "your full time job is philanthropy, i.e. the giving away of money".
Or, possibly, that you have a full-time job and give away 100% of the money you earn from it (presumably paying your bills from savings/investments, or a partner's income, or some such).Aug 15, 2012
- the problem is making 'professional' an adjective. It makes you a professional at philanthropy. In this case you want to somehow convey that you are a professional for philanthropy. P4P? Nah, that's too weird. I'm also probably using the word 'philanthropy' a bit wrong.Aug 16, 2012
