Philanthropic inspiration

Hats off to Warren Buffet for advancing beyond business as usual and shining a very bright spotlight on philanthropy! I hope his $37 billion gift inspires people to build legacies of their own. In fact, thanks to the proliferation of community foundations, individuals don't have to be billionaires to have an impact. You can become part of forever by donating whatever you can afford, by establishing an endowment of your own, or by including a community foundation in your will. One act can have a profound effect.
