Philanthropy (from Greek φιλανθρωπία): The love of humanity, in the sense of caring, nourishing, developing, and enhancing what it means to be human.
A humanitarian at heart, D. Michael Colvard, MD founded Colvard Learning out of genuine concern for the low literacy statistics in the U.S. Born in a rural community to a farming family, Dr. Colvard hopes that the Colvard Learning programs will help children from all economic backgrounds learn to read well, and thus "level the playing field for students."
