We hope you'll enjoy the stories found in Footsteps: Foundations of Hope. Excerpts can be found below, but don't miss out on all the details. Be sure to order a free hard copy or read the stories online.

CAI has expanded into other areas too, initiating over 200 other community, health, and educational programs, with more to come.
Empower Kids With P4P
piggy bank
"I love that my kids can donate just a few dollars from their piggy banks, which is a lot of money for them, and know that they are making a difference for children in other countries who are less fortunate. They feel empowered. P4P is a great way to introduce kids to philanthropy!"

New Ways To Donate
A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a charitable account offered by sponsors such as financial institutions, community foundations, universities, and fraternal or religious organizations. Philanthropists who itemize deductions on their federal income tax returns can write off DAF contributions in the year they are made and receive an immediate tax deduction for the full market value of most assets.

Check out the Donor-Advised section on our website  to help accommodate this growing trend.
