Update from New Philanthropist Program
Kara Duncan, Client Development Manager CCF-LA has made an extra effort to support our clients’ philanthropic giving throughout the current pandemic, especially our New Philanthropist Donor-Advised Fund clients. We have embraced our role as partners in philanthropy by increasing communications that highlight both local and national organizations working to fight the devastation of COVID-19. Our staff continues to provide assistance remotely to connect our clients with causes and organizations they care about, and our role as a partner in philanthropy is becoming increasingly important as those on the margins are being further marginalized.
