Steven Crandell: Anne and Michael Towbes Give Away the Secrets of Their Philanthropy Philosophy
The secret is: There are no secrets to philanthropy! It’s for anyone – repeat – ANYONE.
Anne Smith Towbes and Michael Towbes are examples of Unleashed Abundance and collaborative philanthropy –
“My late mother-in-law (Sara Smith) used to say,
‘The more you give, the more you have to give.’
Just the philosophy of abundance. Whether you have the money or not,
(if) you have the time and the inclination, that’s abundance.”
— Anne Smith Towbes
