Exploring Personal Values
Explore your personal values and how they influence your generosity.
For many of us, values guide our paths in life. Our values may be inherited and also chosen on our own. Who we are and the values we prioritize influence where we live, with whom we surround ourselves, how we work, where we play, what we eat.
What values do you carry, and how have they shaped your life, volunteerism, advocacy and philanthropy?
Join us for an intimate, highly interactive session to explore your personal values and how they influence your generosity. You will be guided through a series of participatory exercises that will help you begin to chart your philanthropy to align with your values.
To allow for meaningful participation, the session will be limited to 10 attendees each. Please register as soon as possible, so we can coordinate delivery of the session materials prior to the session.
The sessions are limited to 10 attendees. We ask that attendees be associated with a charitable fund at the Community Foundation (ex., fund founders, spouses, adult children, significant others associated with your philanthropic journey).
Stay tuned for future sessions.
