Are you or your clients deluged by requests from charities? The best possible antidote is a Giving Plan. Bolder Giving
Do you feel with your nonprofits like a leader or like an ATM?
Do you partner with nonprofits, advisors, and peer networks for inspired outcomes, or are you shaken down for cash?
Do you give when asked, reactively, or do you yourself have a plan and a strategy for affecting change?
Do you pick your nonprofits or do they pick you?
What Tracy Gary of Inspired Legacies, Anne Ellinger of Bolder Giving, and I (we do talk to each other) are on about is not "Extreme Philanthropy" (a phrase with which we have been associated), but a prudent plan for your finances and an inspired plan for your giving. We like to think of you as a co-conspirator for the good, a partner, a collaborator, or a leader, not just a "Wealth Holder," or source of funds. On the other hand, if all I have to do is ask, The Rooster Foundation: Crowing in the New American Century could use a cash infusion to support Smoky Joe's work in subverting the Constitution on behalf of his corporate cronies. He has made tremendous strides in the last few years, but to finalize his work he needs your support. Give Generously! Social change is coming one way or another.
