When creating charitable plans, donors often concentrate on practical considerations, such as choosing a giving vehicle. The story behind a donor’s charitable giving is sometimes overlooked – even though it’s key to fulfilling their legacy.

Join us for a lunch-and-learn with speaker Ken Garfield, former religion editor of The Charlotte Observer, who helps people tell their life stories through their obituaries. Garfield will offer tools and insights for preserving the past and preparing for the future through storytelling. Together, we’ll explore ways to help future generations effectively honor the intent of the donors who came before them.

This is the second session in our 2019 Personal Philanthropy Learning Series, designed to guide individuals and families through topics such as giving effectively today and creating a philanthropic legacy for tomorrow. Be on the lookout for the third and final session in the series:
