Although the Musk Foundation website is very short and rigorous, it is based on four areas of support: research and promotion of renewable energies, human exploration research and promotion, pediatric research, and science and engineering. Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, is the only fund fund of the Musk Foundation, up to now $ 257 million. He is an altruist, philanthropy water, disaster, and sustainability innovations. Musk's philanthropy is a symbol of government support programs, in many ways that can be methodologically and deliberately targeted.
But it does not require institutional intervention, like others, Musk gives its fortune to charity more than its descendants. Together with Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and others, Musk is a member of The Giving Pledge, which allows mega wealth to face most of their fortune for justice and urgent purposes.
The achievements of the Musk business, linked to altruism
"It is not the strongest surviving species … nor the intelligence that survives. It is the most visible change".
– Charles Darwin –
Climate scientists know that temperatures for this century are under 2 degrees (preindustrial levels). The Paris climate deal will take place. It is more important, and fortunately, business decisions and sustainable economically beneficial initiatives are nowadays highly compatible.
Elon Musk has brought about a sustainable future and a sustainable future, as it has led to the creation of a number of targeted companies that have potentially powerful environmental performance and potential for monetization.
In a perfect configuration, all Tesla electric cars can use SolarCity solar panels or Tesla solar roof and Tesla Powerwall to save power. This combination would possibly be able to meet individual home and transport energy needs. No, these are not examples of philanthropy, per se. It's just a matter of ordinary profit, because Tesla products help make the most of sustainable energy.
Other Musk companies have designed, manufactured and manufactured rockets and spacecraft by SpaceX. The company was created in 2002 to revolutionize space technology to live on other planets. Neuralink develops ultra-broadband brain machine interfaces to connect humans and computers. The company intends to create brain-computer interfaces. (In 2015, Musk gave $ 10 million to the future of the Life Institute for a world-class research program to be beneficial for humanity). Boring seeks the most efficient and fastest ways to improve the low-cost tunnels, through high-density regions.
But in business and business, Musk is constantly returning to the possibility of fossil fuels and renewable energy, such as wind and sun. "We are making fire with coal and oil," he said. In fact, human civilization is never so great. The future of the planet is in play and there will be many solutions to the incentives offered by billionaires like Elon Musk.
Filantropia Social and Environmental Justice
"Philanthropy and social change are made better by your values driven and more closely related to what you care for."
– Charles Bronfman –
Foundations, investors, good governance and public institutions worldwide are increasingly committed to achieving clear social and environmental missions that are funded and supported by the innovative business model. Musk appears to be one of those people, and promotes the efforts of social justice and equality in ecological environments. Challenges to address these challenges can have a positive impact on the proverbial domino effect. An example is based on technological advances to provide better education for children's poverty.
As some people are often included in the subscription list, Musk has donated $ 15 million in a XPRIZE program called Global Learning. This competition enables teams around the world to develop open and scalable software in developing countries for up to 15 months of teaching basic reading, writing and arithmetic in developing countries. The project recognizes that 250 million children around the world can not read, write, or show basic arithmetic abilities.
When the Prize was launched in 2014, 700 teams across 55 countries around the world competed. For 2017, the 5 main concepts were located in over 2,500 children in remote Tanzania eastern 141 villages to test the application of each group.
The group that has the highest literacy level of 500 children is gaining XPRIZE.
Flint, Michigan Water Pollution
"Philanthropy is happy, but the philanthropy does not require philanthropy as a necessary economic injustice."
– Martin Luther King, Jr. –
Within the Philanthropy, it is also an important interaction between the three main agents of our society: government, business and people.
Four years ago, Flint's Michigan water supply was introduced to transport toxins and find other toxins. The community has problems with water pollution. In October 2018, Musk and the Musk Foundation donated $ 480,350 to all new water sources for installation systems. "Water purification water purification system for water filtration systems will disinfect water pipes and lead bacteria to drink and fill drinks from drinking water," says Flint in a press release.
Flint Community School Superintendent Derrick Lopez added that "new water filtration systems would be essential for returning our students' basic rights to water: access to water to get access to clean water and access to water."
Musk also committed the process of fulfilling the commitment made in 2018 to solve any water filtration system of Flint homes infected with the FDA.
Puerto Rico Energy Infrastructure
"The results of philanthropy are always beyond the calculation."
– Mary Ritter Beard –

Ricardo Rosselló spoke to Elon Musk at the end of 2017, through Twitter social networks, to investigate Tesla's response to hurricane hurricane after hurricane recovery. Reporter Maria Galluci described the island, because water treatment facilities could not cool down food, markets, and restaurants, banks could not make transactions and people could not communicate with the cell phone or the Internet. Street lights and traffic lights stopped. Schools and hospitals closed doors.
Musk offered the Tesla services to restore power to Puerto Rico. After his personal donation of $ 250,000, hundreds of Powerwall batteries were loaded into the island. At the end of October, Musk and Tesla successfully achieved the largest hospital for children in the island through a combination of Powerwheel and solar energy technologies. This was possible because Tesla technology was able to avoid the infrastructure of broken power networks.
There were 6 more battery projects in Puerto Rico, such as the Susan Centeno hospital, the Boys and Girls Club in Vieques, the Arcadia water pump station, the sanitation sewer treatment and the elderly Ciudad Dorada.
Each package, already associated with solar arrays, has a power of 550 kilowatt-hours. In April, Tesla will send over 1,000 power stations to 662 locations today.
Make a math to determine how much MWh Tesla has already expanded. Yowza!
Tesla batteries now live and deliver power to Puerto Rico 662 locations. The group works for 24 hours to activate hundreds more. https://t.co/OMu8qKJvLy

Tesla participated in a larger initiative in Puerto Rico to renew the decision on fossil fuels. The mayor of Carmen Yulín Cruz offered a vision of self-determination of clean energy at the Sanders Institute to report on the island's renewable energy to meet the need to "live, live and survive".
Politics and altruism Intersect
"Politics have no moral relationship".
– Niccolo Machiavelli –
The Musk Foundation has created at least one non-profit center of the right, the Libertario-Aligned Institute of the Cato, according to the Influence Watch research by Search Search.
The Musk Foundation also finances financially active organizations to support the progressive agenda and the National Wildlife Federation. Sierra Club Foundation; subsidy fund new fund; Global Green USA; Energy Foundation; Clinton Foundation; People from the American Way Foundation; Oxfam America; Oceana; BlueGreen Alliance Foundation; Tides Center; and the Council for the Defense of Natural Resources (NRDC).
"If you get up in the morning and think that the future is better, it's a clear day, otherwise it's not."
– Elon Musk –
Lorek says that the Greek dramatist of Eschylus had invented the word "philanthropy" in the 5th century as "human love". "In our society, it's curious that people like Elon Musk have a great deal of influence and power on this model of moral, scientific and environmental altruism. It gives them the gift of time, money, experience, ingenuity, skills and talent to create a better world.
Many philanthropists promote a great desire to solve social problems and support others. And, yes, the federal US tax can give incentives to a variety of ways (up to now, at least – to continue returning April 2019 updates). The lender offers deductions for income, capital gains, and tax taxes. Undoubtedly, Elon Musk and other meetings are aware of economic wealth by giving charity.
However, Musk is related to his philanthropy, the tax benefits seem to be much greater. In fact, from the perspective of environmental philanthropism, Musk has included values, knowledge, political orientation and many socio-demographic variables in the US wealth enrichment. It has been shown that people of the highest social stance can be able to properly call things good ethically and productively.
At historically important moments in history, we must take part in honest discussions about the responsibility of our planet's state and our global community, so that environmental care supervisors can at least create at least one model. Like Mussen's philanthropy. Successes and defeats of philanthropy can be influenced by remote villages or the oil industry, a farmer with a deforestation threat or a small city that has infected fracking water. Musken's philanthropy is worth our attention and appreciation.
