This year November 15th marks National Philanthropy Day. Celebrated across the nation through luncheons, galas, award ceremonies, and seminars, it is a day to recognize those who have given from the heart. And I am thrilled to be attending my very first National Philanthropy Day event right here in Madison, Wisconsin. Scheduled for Friday, November 2nd at the Overture Arts Center will be a networking reception, luncheon and awards ceremony.
In a counter balance to the drafting I do for clients in the areas of estate planning and probate, I am also completing a book on how the middle class can also be philanthropic. Giving need not be reserved for the tech billionaires we read out in the news. As I put the finishing touches on my book, I'd love to hear stories from real world America. What small gift made a difference in the life of a non-profit? Please share, and inspire others. And I might profile the story in my book!
