The principal at our school likes to announce when a munificent or highly generous supporter has made a large donation. I’m not sure whether he is trying to acknowledge kind, munificent acts of giving, or whether he is attempting to shame those who do not support the school. I would like to be more munificent or giving with money than I am, but I don’t have the funds to be as charitable as I’d like to be.
Quiz: When is someone munificent?
- When they cannot give money to a cause.
- When they act in a highly giving way.
- When they talk publicly about others.
