Charitable giving can take many forms and can start at any level, from donating $50 to a local women’s shelter or children’s charity to creating a scholarship fund or private foundation with millions of dollars (or billions). But if you’ve never done more than donate small amounts here and there, you may not understand how you can reach a level of giving that creates a significant impact like Ms. Scott is doing now. And you don’t have to help found the next $1.5 Trillion dollar company to do it!
"I know I shouldn't have so much just sitting in cash," my client says as we're looking at her checking account, and then she laughs a little bit to lighten the conversation. "I should do something with it, I know, but I just like having it there. I like to see it and know it's right there." We're not looking at $5,000 or $25,000 of cash either. We're talking $100,000, $300,000, even $1,000,000 or more of cash on the sidelines that I've worked through with my own clients.
