Mandatory Volunteering

According to the Corporation for National and Community Service, approximately 77.34 MILLION Americans spent 6.9 BILLION hours of their time volunteering in 2018. The value of those efforts comes to a whopping $167 billion dollars, not counting the comfort, compassion and change those volunteers brought to our communities and beyond.

Volunteers change the lives of those around them. Being a volunteer is something everyone should consider. The experience is life changing. However, it should be voluntary.

Webster’s Dictionary says that a philanthropist is “one who makes an active effort to promote human welfare.”

When you hear the word philanthropy, you may think of names like Carnegie, Kennedy, Rockefeller, and contemporary mega-wealthy people like Bill Gates.

Such people are voluntary philanthropists.

What do you call someone who surrenders a portion of their capital gains unnecessarily? How about someone who unnecessarily surrenders a huge portion of their retirement monies to support the general welfare of our country?

An uninformed taxpayer!

(I call them an involuntary philanthropist.)
