"I believe that charitable giving enhances the quality of life for individuals and families. Charitable giving can create family traditions and legacy whether the gift is time, service or financial resources. I believe that most people are charitable and generous especially if they can measure and project the impact of their gifts on their own financial future, their family's financial future, and the community."

"Behavioral economic research has shown that above a certain level of wealth, additional dollars do not add very much to the owner's overall happiness. Those same dollars can have a tremendous impact on those with fewer resources and on the overall quality of life in a community. Bottom line: giving feels great and improves lives."

Economical Options
