Friday, November 7th, the Madison Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals will honor a variety of people and organizations who "have change the world with a giving heart". Nominations will be accepted through July 31st, 2008.
If you know of a situation where a person died and left a modest gift to a charity, which was put to great use, I'd love to hear about it! Currently I am researching and writing a book about charitable giving. The point I'd like to emphasize is that anyone can be charitable -- one need not be a Kennedy or a Rockefeller to make a difference in the world.
