Your unique skills are so needed in the world today. Bring your expertise to a local non-profit board, mentor a young person, up your pro bono contributions, or join your area's S.C.O.R.E. chapter to help struggling business owners with strategy. These are only a few of the ways your talent can change lives.
For many of us, giving can take various forms throughout our lives. There are times in our lives when we only have time to give: we have little talent and very few resources. At other points, we have no time to spare and the best we can do is write a check to the causes we care about and continue on with our busy lives. The best times are when we are able to give our time, our talent and our treasure. It is in these times when we gain the most.
You see, giving back benefits the receiver of those gifts (of course). But what about the giver? When you give back, you are:
And so much more! Your company benefits. Your family benefits. When Everybody Gives, Everybody Wins.
We believe generosity is a multiplier creating a bigger, more authentic life for the giver and a brighter, better world for all.
The world is waiting for you to share your gifts. What is your heart drawn to? Do you have a passion for animals or is the environment more your thing? Are you drawn to global issues, or those effecting your neighborhood? Are you worried about early childhood education, sexual abuse and exploitation of children or abandoned puppies and our threatened environment?
Start where your heart directs you. There are no "right" or "wrong" answers. When you start, you become a part of the solution, the world becomes a better place and YOU begin to live the life you were born to live!
Generosity is about more than money. It's about helping a neighbor - or a stranger. It's as small as a random act of kindness, like baking cookies to welcome the new neighbors or as large as leveraging your network to help an unemployed single mom find a job. Giving your time will change lives.
Utilizing your financial resources for the benefit of others provides an enormous return on investment for you and the recipient of your generosity! A financial commitment can bring joy, health, hope and results. If you are passionate about a cause, invest your financial resources in the solution. Your treasure will change lives - including your own.
