Philanthropy

Filantropie

Definition
Philanthropy is the practice of acting to improve the conditions of disadvantaged people by contributing money or other resources – and very often also one’s time and talents – to good causes.
Definice
Filantropie je praxe chování za účelem zlepšení podmínek znevýhodněných lidí přispíváním peněz nebo jiných zdrojů – a velmi často také času a talentu – na dobročinné účely.
Example sentence
As part of its corporate social responsibility efforts, Voltic has again this year increased the amount of money it dedicates to philanthropy.
Příklad použití ve větě
V rámci svého úsilí pro firemní společenskou odpovědnost společnost Voltic tento rok opět zvýšila množství peněz, které věnuje na filantropii.
Comment
Philanthropy literally means “love of people”, and it is now commonly understood to refer to charitable activities for the benefit of large groups of underprivileged people or humanity as a whole. Because money donated for charitable purposes is tax deductible, philanthropy can be used as a means of (legal) Tax optimization.
Poznámka
Filantropie doslova znamená „láska k lidem“ a dnes se obvykle chápe jako charitativní činnost prospěšná pro velké skupiny znevýhodněných lidí nebo lidstva jako celku. Jelikož peníze věnované na dobročinné účely jsou odečitatelné z daní, filantropii lze použít jako prostředek (legální) daňové optimalizace.
