Anthony James Morris
Anthony James Morris is a leading figure in the philanthrocapitalism movement—which is to say, he is a firm believer in creating financial value whilst helping the poor, disadvantaged and the homeless. The philanthrocapitalism concept may be a new one to many, but according to Morris, it is a notion that is going to shape philanthropy—and business—for a long time to come. With Morris as one of its leaders, the movement is shaping the way people think about humanitarianism, particularly the great business
minds of this world whom Morris is actively rallying to the cause.
Of course, Morris was not always involved with this particular movement. Actually, he has walked a long and circuitous path in terms of his professional life and interests.
For more than two decades now, Anthony James Morris has been a respected financial professional. It is through his work in finance that he understands how acts of humanism and philanthropy can truly add value and bring in profits. One of his central ambitions is to use the skills he developed in finance to help the less fortunate, and to advance the cause of philanthrocapitalism.
Morris is a strong Christian who looks to his faith as the source and motivation behind all of his acts of compassion and philanthropy. He believes that philanthrocapitalism provides some of the tools necessary for loving one’s neighbor and for living out the Golden Rule.
A committed family man, Morris has five children and a sixth on the way. He knows that they will inherit the world he leaves behind. As such, he is zealous to leave this place better than he found it.
