Once thought to be the exclusive arena of the ultra-wealthy, charitable giving has become a national phenomenon across all tax brackets and households. In fact, charitable giving surged to a record high of over $400 billion in 2017 alone, and Individual giving accounts for the majority of those donations.
Philanthropy and giving are not only good for the charities and organizations receiving the donations, but for the givers themselves. Research has shown that charitable giving can help you feel better, improve life satisfaction and even activate the reward centers of your brain. [ii]

Happy Thanksgiving! It is hard to believe with the warm weather in Minnesota that we will be celebrating Thanksgiving next week. I look forward to this time of year as we gather with family and friends along with wonderful food and appreciation. I am especially looking forward to my oldest daughter, Maddy, coming back home for the first time since she started college. Maddy and I have a tradition of spending a lot of time together in the kitchen while cooking the Thanksgiving meal and desserts together. Two of the Core Values at Flourish are to Grow and Share our experience and insights, along with Making a difference.
