Thank you to guest host Judith Siers-Poisson for having me on Wisconsin Public Radio's Larry Meiller Show yesterday to discuss my book, Middle Class Philanthropist: How anyone can leave a legacy. For those who were not able to tune-in, the show is now available on-line, click here.
Philanthropy is a term normally associated with individuals who have a seven-figure net worth, making a splash in the end of the year news cycle with hefty donations to worthy causes. Judith and Wisconsin Public Radio helped shine the spotlight on the every day Americans who have made a difference in the life of a nonprofit without leaving it a fortune. I know the four stories included in my book are not the only ones out there. If you have a story to share, please email or call me as I work on my second book on this topic. My goal is to profile ten or twelve individuals or families who have left a legacy without being mega-wealthy.
