more people than the magazine," said Gaskin. "What we
are seeing is a thirst and a real hunger for news about people
who are doing well by doing good. The more ways that we can share
these inspirational stories, like radio or television, the better
our community is for it. Were trying to spark or ignite
the charitable impulse in others and certainly give listeners
more choices when they make their volunteer or charitable decisions"
About Benefit Magazine Inc.
Benefit magazine is the essential and authoritative voice of
the new philanthropic lifestyle embracing arts, culture, education,
community, environment, health, rights and giving.
Benefit Magazine is the first publication that recognizes that
philanthropy is no longer a stand alone endeavor but a personal
decision that is being viewed through the prisms of personal interests.
Indeed, it has become a lifestyle. And non-profits that are trying
to speak directly to donors and doers without understanding their
philanthropic lifestyle are suffering for it. Arts, culture, education,
environment, health, rights, giving and more are all now intertwined
with peoples philanthropic lifestyle, and Benefit is their
essential and authoritative guide for that world.
The readers of Benefit Magazine are the doers and the donors
who attend events, give time and energy in their community, and
the non-profits and foundations themselves.
The core audience is made up both of the hard-core philanthropists
and the emerging, active donors, people from the age of 25 to
45 who are embracing this philanthropic lifestyle with open arms.
They are 60% female and 40% male and most make well over $100,000
a year. They view their philanthropic lifestyle through the lens
of how they define themselves and understand that the world of
philanthropy also embraces arts, culture, education, environment,
health, rights and giving.
