Dr. Richard Gunderman is Chancellor’s professor of Radiology, Pediatrics, Medical Education, Philosophy, Liberal Arts, Philanthropy, and Medical Humanities and Health Studies at Indiana University.  Often we hear about people like John Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie as some of the most generous Americans of all times. Lists of the most generous philanthropists in the US are regularly produced to show how much these men and women give away. But these lists distort our understanding of generosity. Dr. Gunderman recently released an article about charitiable giving and how time is many times more valuable than money.
