“I’ve noticed in my estate planning practice that clients interested in gifting often plan to give to a national organization simply because they are unsure of gifting options at the local level. They have a desire to give locally, but they do not know where to start. Galesburg Community Foundation is terrific at helping our community understand how they can have an impact locally long after they are gone.”
