Greetings from the president

The Movement that

Makes Philanthropy a Part of Life, APA

When 100 people in the non-profit sector first created the APA in 2015, only a few people knew exactly the meaning of philanthropy and the change that we would realize. Philanthropy was considered as a very broad term, and we thought we lacked to realize such.

The etymology of philanthropy is love for humanity.
Philanthropy! It is such a difficult term to pronounce properly. We made several attempts to translate its profound meaning into Korean but “sharing,” “donation,” and “service” alone couldn’t embody the desire for “fundamental change” and “great influence on society.” Hence, we decided to keep the word “philanthropy.” However, there is something we learned about philanthropy as we created APA together.

Philanthropy starts from understanding other’s pain. It means if our neighbor is sick, I would feel sick in the same way.
Love for our neighbor starts from the sympathy for their pain. Some people would feel bad for a whole day after seeing an elderly picking up waste paper on the street. A few can’t forget a picture of a turtle that chocked from plastic bag.

Philanthropy grows in you with the desire to share what you like.
the desire in which you want to share the music you like and the education that you were fortunate to receive. Therefore, we donate and ask others for donations.

Philanthropy grows with a waiting mind.
It may be more convenient to catch a fish instead of someone else, but the effect is greater and more meaningful when you wait and encourage them to catch it by themselves.

As aforementioned, philanthropy is not a difficult subject.
Winners, volunteers, organizers, judges, candidates, celebrities, etc. have come to realize this after 5 years of cultivating the APA. APA is the movement that places the grandiose philanthropy as a part of our lives.

It is the reason why we can all be philanthropists, for we shared our pain, acted together, and waited.
