Welcome to The Physician Philanthropist!


This is the place for anyone interested in amplifying their impact. You are in the right place here if you are interested in being intentional about how you put your money into the world.  How you give, how you invest, and how you spend. Because every way you put your money out there is putting your power out there.

This is the place for empowerment, where we know that giving even in small amounts can have a significant impact, and you do not need to be a billionaire to make a difference in the world. Join us in creating a community of thoughtful, respectful, and intentional people making a difference.

Chances are, you are busy.


I am, too. The last thing we need is one more task on our to-do list or another complicated thing to worry about. But we also care deeply; it's why we went into medicine. And we don’t stop caring at the end of the workday. So I have made it easy for you to understand the best ways to make the most impact with your hard-earned dollars. Easy sounds nice, doesn't it?

Imagine the impact 100 of us, or 1,000, or 10,000, or 100,000 of us can have together.

If this means something to you and you want to be part of this movement, share it. 

Share this with your friends and colleagues. Follow us on FB, IG, and LinkedIn. If you are a doctor, join our doctors-only private FB group—a respectful, inspiring, and exciting place to learn how to maximize our impact
