Image of Fred NajjarWe have officially entered the holiday giving season!

#GivingTuesday was earlier this week. For those who celebrated by giving or asking for support, I hope it was a big success.

With nearly a third of all giving happening in December, we know this is just the beginning of a busy season for philanthropy, filled with soliciting year-end gifts, thanking donors, celebrating the year’s highlights, and setting goals for what’s ahead.

I hope in the midst of your holiday celebrations and year-end commitments that you will find time to express gratitude to our donors and supporters, families, and colleagues who make the work of our mission possible.
