Community Foundation of NCW and Pybus University Present the Benefits of Giving

The Community Foundation of NCW is partnering with Pybus University for a special presentation, “Do Well by Doing Good: The Multifarious Benefits of Altruism” on Tuesday, October 25th at 7:00pm at the LocalTel Center in Pybus Market.

Drawing upon recent scientific evidence, this presentation will share the psychological, spiritual and health benefits of giving. It will also provide compelling information on the valuable role of philanthropy in training the next generation, inoculating them from “affluenza” and paving the way for more successful wealth transition. The presentation will provide the economic benefits of philanthropy in the U.S. and will illustrate these through case studies that show the power of smart giving strategies. Finally, the presentation will also share some inspiring stories of magnificent legacies left by ordinary people through their estates.

Presenter Lorraine del Pardo is principal of del Prado Philanthropy and Senior Vice President of Thompson & Associates. She specializes in values-based estate planning consulting and philanthropic planning and is a frequent speaker on topics related to philanthropy and purposeful estate plans.

“We have been so inspired by our community’s giving in recent years, especially those who have committed to leave a legacy through the foundation and have joined our Heirloom Society Legacy Circle” said Beth Stipe, the foundation’s executive director. “Bringing Lorraine to Wenatchee for this special presentation will give us a better understanding of how giving can be impactful not only in our communities, but in ourselves as we continue to learn about its health and spiritual benefits. Lorraine is an expert in the field of philanthropy and this no-cost presentation will be a treat for everyone who attends!”

"My father was a migrant agricultural worker who eventually started his own cherry and apple orchard. [He] told me if I wanted to live a better life, I had to get an education. I plan on starting a career with the Chelan PUD with a passion for renewable energy and in turn give back to my parents and community for supporting my dreams.”

STRATEGIC CONSULTING GRANT RECIPIENT

Due to being rural, remote, and geographically isolated Aero Methow Rescue Service must be prepared to do more than respond to emergencies. We have become a healthcare partner who fills gaps in service.  This program allows our board the time and ability to work with a Strategic Planner to modify our plan to address those gaps.
