    You could try "altruist".

    re: formal word for work and dedicate for society

    Please give your threads useful titles. "Word" is a useless title and we can't tell which thread is which. Your other thread could have been called "travel/journey" and this one could have been called "dedicated to society."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    This is a point I made on the second post the OP made with the title "Word". I don't think he/she is listening.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
