“We make a living by what we get, but we make life by what we give.”

— Winston Churchill

Joyful philanthropy is about linking passion with action, be it giving treasure, talent and time that result in active participation. It’s about stewarding authentic connections with the not-for-profit sector to guide the creation of giving strategies and programs that connect philanthropic investments to values.

Yet, navigating the world of philanthropy can be challenging. Questions like “what organizations have the best outcomes in my issue area” to “what’s the best strategy and plan for my giving?” require experience and expertise that many individual donors and families might not have. Even donors who are experienced philanthropists may not have the time to develop and implement a thoughtful plan. Nadel Philanthropic Advising can help.
