Charity is all around us. From soup kitchens to philharmonic orchestras, some of the very best things in public life are the results of generous giving. You may not even realize it, but you are surrounded by countless acts of charity. In order for public life to flourish, then, giving matters. So, the steady decline in Canadian giving is serious since it will have public consequences.
Of course, we know that the teachings of many religious communities stress the observance of regular giving, and the faithful stewardship of resources. Giving does not get in the way of life, but is a way of life. But, even religious groups today are not immune from the general decline in giving we see across the broader Canadian culture.
