Investing in charity is no different than investing in the market... it’s a proactive process of defining charitable goals, and identifying and assessing opportunities that will lead to those goals. This program helped attendees learn how to effectively create change in their community, experience deep satisfaction in their charitable giving, double or triple the value of their contributions through leveraging, and eliminate unsolicited requests for funding.
Attendees left knowing:
What five key questions to ask yourself before you give another dime to charity
Which four people to talk to if you want the inside scoop on an organization
What ten warning signs you should look out for when making a sizable gift
Attendees received a copy of Rafferty’s newly released book, Smart Generosity: How to Make the Most of Your Charitable Giving, which provides a comprehensive guide to defining your personal, family, or corporate philanthropic focus.
