Istituto Acton and the United States Embassy to the Holy See co-sponsored a one-day conference to discuss the political, economic, religious and moral conditions favoring the growth of philanthropy and private welfare. Ambassador Mary Ann Glendon chaired sessions with European and American philanthropists, entrepreneurs, opinion leaders and religious. Before a distinguished audience of Vatican officials, businessmen, heads of charitable enterprises, academics, seminarians and journalists, the conference’s speakers addressed traditional and innovative models of philanthropy and challenges to such models. Discussion during the roundtable session focused primarily on how human fulfilment and happiness are enhanced by charitable giving.
