Pybus Market, LocalTel Event Center, Wenatchee WA

We know that altruism and philanthropy benefit recipients and the communities where they live, but charitable activity also has tremendous benefits for the giver. As Ralph Waldo Emerson writes, “It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.” In this presentation, you will be oriented to the many benefits of altruism and philanthropy to the giver.
Drawing upon recent scientific evidence, this presentation will share the psychological, spiritual and health benefits of giving, along with 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 also 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 - and share some inspiring stories of magnificent legacies left by ordinary people through their estates.
