Are You Giving Wisely?

December 20, 2016

Think critically about how and why you give

CFT's GiveWisely series was created as a way to assist donors in developing their own approach to their personal philanthropy—by thinking strategically and learning from a group of like-minded peers.

GiveWisely offers participants an opportunity to look deeper into what motivates them to give, so they leave the class with a clearer idea of which issues they want to support, the knowledge of how they can go about doing so, and the ability to say “yes” or “no” powerfully, depending on whether an opportunity is aligned with their own focus.

Saying no is hard for a lot of people. We help people step back and think about their values and set charitable goals so they end up feeling great and knowing what to say YES to.

Many people want to consider how they can best communicate their charitable values with their family, as well as how they want to improve the community and leave a legacy. We can help you with that—we can help you brainstorm, whether it’s really simple or more complex.

Limited spots for the upcoming GiveWisely class are available and the deadline is December 31, 2016. This year we’re doing a new condensed, 2-day course on two Saturday mornings from 8:30-12:00pm. The course is open to all charitably-minded individuals, and requires a $500 tax-deductible donation to participate. If you are interested, contact me at or at 214-750-4234 with any questions.
