Philanthropy
Philanthropy etymologically means "love of humanity" in the sense of caring, nourishing, developing and enhancing "what it is to be human" on both the benefactors' (by identifying and exercising their values in giving and volunteering) and beneficiaries' (by benefiting) parts. The most conventional modern definition is "private initiatives, for public good, focusing on quality of life". This combines the social scientific aspect developed in the 20th century with the original humanistic tradition, and serves to contrast philanthropy with business (private initiatives for private good, focusing on material prosperity) and government (public initiatives for public good, focusing on law and order).

Filantropía
El término filantropía designa, en general, el amor al género humano y a todo lo que a la humanidad respecta, particularmente en una forma constructiva expresada en la ayuda desinteresada a los demás. Etimológicamente, la palabra deriva del griego φίλος (philos o filos) y άνθρωπος (anthropos), que se traducen respectivamente como “amor” (o “amante de”, “amigo de”) y “hombre”, por lo que filantropía significa “amor a la humanidad”. Su antónimo es misantropía.

Филантроп
Филантро́п (от , «любить» и , «человек») — покровитель нуждающихся, приверженец благотворительности.

Древнейшей формой благотворительности была милостыня и призрение нищих, главным образом, при церквях и монастырях.

Филантроп — полная противоположность Мизантропу. Филантропия — человеколюбие, забота об улучшении участи человечества.
