41 Our goal: Start the conversation.

42 Start the conversation.  Inspire professional advisors to talk with clients about charitable giving.  Encourage nonprofits to talk with supporters.  Motivate residents to count the community among their heirs.

43 Charitable investments can be made now or through your will. Consider 5%, 10% or more.

44 Example: If a non-profit organization needs $15,000 to run a program, a $300,000 endowment would fund that. Forever.

45 We have the opportunity to turn good communities into great communities that will survive and thrive.

46 Let’s start the conversation.
