Welcome to our blog! In the new era of philanthropy, the individual donor is emerging as the the critical component to addressing our community and social challenges. In the past it has been the nonprofit and government that has been the “solution provider” . We want you, the donor, to understand the three major benefits you will receive from this blog. This blog and topics we will address in future blogs -with a new blog published every two weeks - will benefit you, the donor (and grantors as well), in making wiser, more effective financial giving decisions.
