New York philanthropist Jean Shafiroff, hosted a cocktail party on March 21st at her New York apartment on Park Ave to celebrate the publication of her new book Successful Philanthropy – How to make a life by what you give.
The book features an introduction from Georgina Bloomberg, who made a special guest appearance at the celebration party.
Jean Shafiroff made a short speech during the party and talked about her inspiration for writing the book. She said, "when you give, you get, and what you get is the reward of knowing that what you are doing is making the world a better place." She also thanked representatives from many of the foundations she works with including Robert Chaloner, President of the Southampton Hospital, and Elise McCabe-Thompson, President of the NYC Mission Society.
Successful Philanthropy is a practical guide to modern giving that redefines philanthropy for today’s era. Far more than making monetary donations, philanthropy today encompasses giving time and knowledge, resources that can be just as valuable as financial contributions.
The author Jean Shafiroff is a philanthropist and humanitarian, and is considered to be at the vanguard of a new movement of modern philanthropists. She is a volunteer fundraiser, leader and spokesperson for several charitable causes such as New York City Mission Society, New York Women’s Foundation, French Heritage Society… Each year she chairs numerous galas and hosts events benefiting numerous not-for-profit organizations.
