Houston’s New Faces of Philanthropy

The Young Professionals Making a Major Difference

BY // 12.27.16

Philanthropy runs deep through the veins of H-Town society. Just look at the number of successful charitable fundraising events held here each year — hundreds and hundreds raising hundreds of millions of dollars. The spirit of giving is a phenomenon that spreads through the generations, engaging the progeny of the established as well as tweaking the sensitivity of up and comers. And that is a very good thing.

As you might have heard, “Everyone to whom much was given, of him much will be required.” It is a creed, while not purposely quoting the Bible, that demands a certain responsibility, one that many Houstonians embrace. Whether it’s truly for giving back or for networking or for personal publicity, the end result is the same, Houston benefits.

Herewith, we take a look at up and coming movers and shakers, philanthropists and business leaders who made PaperCity while making a difference in Houston in 2016. Scroll through the photo gallery above this story to get the full list.
