The Virtue of Generosity
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
– Winston Churchill
Thank goodness the virtue of generosity is not lost on corporations and individuals who have the resources, and the heart to give them away.
Recently, B. Gunther & Co. was a proud sponsor of the West Suburban Philanthropic Network Annual Awards Luncheon. We watched as local leaders in philanthropy were recognized for their bold giving and dedicated corporations, nonprofits and service clubs were honored for their impact on the community.
Talk to any of these award winners and they’ll tell you that by helping, they received even more than they gave. That’s because entrusted to the proper hands, philanthropy inspires and empowers organizations to achieve even more for their constituents.
Donor walls are a great way to show appreciation to your most generous supporters and this month’s article gives you some inspiration on how to get started. It’s a great way to thank the “big givers” in your life.
Remember, everyone deserves a little recognition!
