Giving three” is a shorthand description for the giving of “time, talent, and treasure”–or as Martin Novom prefers, “work, wisdom, and wealth.” It’s not uncommon for fundraisers (at least in North America) to focus most of their attention on the “treasure” or “wealth” aspect of philanthropy, meanwhile “time and talent” or “work and wisdom” take a backseat.
