Cause Connection eNewsletter
In this May 2023 issue of the Cause Connection eNewsletter, Megan Briggs, our Director of Community Investments, shares with you our experience integrating “trust-based philanthropy.” As a result, we have shifted much of our foundation-directed leadership grantmaking to support of nonprofits’ general operating expenses. For several years, we have been championing this approach to grantmaking that eases the burdens nonprofits face. As a learning organization, we are committed to sharing our findings with our donors and fundholders while we continue to advocate for this grantmaking approach.
Cause Connection | January 2023
The January issues begins a message from LVCF CEO Erika Riddle Petrozelli who shared that in December 2022 alone, LVCF received and processed almost $5 million in gifts, and almost $1 million in grants. After a big thank you to donors and fundholders, Erika provides a few highlights of what LVCF has done as an organization during 2022. In this issue, we also introduce a new board member and two new staff members. The issue also contains an article on the new legacy IRA and an update on QCD rules for 2023.
Cause Connection | December 2022
As we come to the end of 2022, we have two simple words for our donors and fundholders, board members (past and present), and friends and associates—thank you. In this issue, we answer the most common questions about Qualified Charitable Deductions (QCD) and we say so long to 2022 and share important charitable tax planning reminders as the year winds down.And, as always, thank you for your continued support and interest.
Cause Connection| October/November 2022
In this issue, we share a high-level overview of our new strategic plan themed “growth through partnership.” As we turn the corner towards the end of the year, we share tips for charitable giving. We also provide a link to a webpage where you can find recordings of our virtual nonprofit visits from the past year. There you can watch videos and learn more about the important work these organizations are doing for the community. Thank you for your continued support and interest.
