The end of the calendar year inspires charitable giving, as evidenced by the stacks of solicitations that arrive in our mailboxes. And most of us approach the inevitable appeal in the same way (usually hurriedly, as if taken by surprise or perfunctorily, as if merely an obligation). But what if we were to look at it with fresh eyes? What if we could stand out in the crowd? There are those among us that have done just that, with great success. In this case-study based conversation we’ll explore examples of best practices and consider the reasons for taking a fresh look at end of year giving. After all, it only comes around once! (Ohio)
