"The Philanthropy Channel" Mission:
We are in the business of moving people and making people care. We use storytelling to paint a picture of a more meaningful world. We hope to change the way people view television ~ that is, as a force for good and not just for escapism.
We want to introduce a new narrative on television with programming that is more hope-based than fear-based, where content creators can weave their convictions into their vocation.
We are amplifying the message of philanthropy, compassion and caring for the love of humanity.
The Philanthropy Channel focuses on philanthropy and philanthropists from community organizers to movie stars whose giving inspires all of us to do more.
Our documentary, information and movie programming inspires viewers to become more informed and engaged in the world’s social and moral challenges, both globally and locally.
