Getting Global Philanthropy Going


Getting Global Philanthropy Going
This event is sponsored by Alliance Magazine, in conjunction with the December 2004 issue of Alliance, which focused on “Getting Global Giving Going”.

What would it take to really get global philanthropy going? This question was the subject of a special feature in the December 2004 edition of Alliance. As part of that feature, we brought together a roundtable of people from all over the world to brainstorm the topic. We begin this online event with a summary of their discussions (click here to read complete text), which ranged around a number of key questions: Is global philanthropy increasing? What are the barriers to its increase? What can be done to stimulate it?

A Better Community For All (ABC4All)

Self-Funding for Charities: What the World Needs Now

Self-Funding for Charities: What the World Needs Now

A Better Community For All (ABC4All) has been in development for six years. The purpose is to create an action plan that will harness ALL consumerism via credit cards to benefit charities worldwide with self-funding. Included is the creation of an endowment fund, the Millennium Endowment Fund (MEF), that will match, or double any charitable contribution generated via such consumerism. Such “Directed Consumerism With Automatic “TechnoGiving” (DCAT)™” thereby supports worthwhile causes worldwide.


ABC4All has begun implementation in 2004. The mission of ABC4All is to assist with self-funding of worthwhile causes the world over: "Maximizing Charitable Contributions on and off the Internet"™  

In 09/04, there was the simultaneous establishment of the Foundation of A Better Community For All (FABC), a National Heritage Foundation, and The ABC4All Triple Giving Program (ABC4AllGGG)™ or TGP.


Implementation of ABC4All has begun with a Trio of Foci: 1) Community Health, Exercise and Nutrition for All (CHEN4All), 2) The ABC4All Triple Giving Program (ABC4AllGGG)™ and 3) The Path of 8Petals leading to Health Heights™.


With ABC4AllGGG or The Triple Giving Program (TGP), there is established the means by which the ABC4All mission can be fulfilled. The cornerstone of ABC4AllGGG is The Giving Card (TGC). TGC has received an endorsement by the Vatican.

No risk or obligation is involved for businesses, charities or consumers to participate. Once consumers are enrolled as a Friend of ABC4All (FABC) and then expand their support via enrollment via ABC4All in The Giving Card (TGC), automatic micropayments will be generated based on ALL consumerism executed with existing credit cards (no new card is required) that are used by the Friends of ABC4All.


With the creation of the Millennium Endowment Fund (MEF), The Foundation of A Better Community For All (FABC) will match, or double any charitable contributions created via such directed consumerism. The Friends of ABC4All with their participation can support one or more charities of their choosing.


By establishment of A Better Community For All (ABC4All), no individual or group benefits, only the worthwhile causes to which the micropayments are designated by participating consumers, the Friends of A Better Community For All (FABC). The ABC4All legacy is thereby established and will continue into perpetuity. Finally, ALL consumerism is harnessed to the betterment of mankind.
