Love is in the air and even though Valentine’s Day may have come and gone, that doesn’t mean we can’t still show others how much we care. And one of the best ways to do this is through charitable giving. There are even health benefits associated with giving including lower blood pressure and stress levels and greater happiness and satisfaction. Studies have even shown that giving back is a way to improve not only your physical health but also your mental well-being.

Ways to Give

From volunteering to setting up a donor-advised fund, there are many ways to donate your time and treasure. But if you’re looking for a more structured, strategic way to impact the world, consider starting a private foundation. We sat down with some of our clients and asked them to share the benefits of having a private foundation, and their answers inspired us.

“I actually am the lucky one when I give,” says Carrie Morgridge, Chief Disruptor of the Morgridge Family Foundation. “I’m actually receiving something that’s meaningful and beneficial for my heart and soul. Giving back feeds my purpose and makes me fulfilled.”
