When we give to others, it brings us joy.* Imagine the joy you can receive when your giving gives eight times over!
Last month, Professional Wealth Advisors, LLC chose to give a financial contribution to Northern Illinois Food Bank (NIFB). The PWA team selected the nonprofit as the best method of serving the community by giving the gift of food.
It gave us all great joy to know our gift was meeting a critical need. And, we learned that our gift that was multiplied by eight!
An added advantage of NIFB is that they have the ability to leverage every $1 into $8 of purchasing power.
According to Steve Christensen, Director of Individual Giving at Northern Illinois Food Bank, “The average financial donation is leveraged into eight (8) times its value in purchases. During special match grants, the value may be even greater.”
Professional Wealth Advisors, LLC is grateful and blessed to be able to make this gift to NIFB. We are pleased to know that every dollar contributed will purchase exactly what is needed to be distributed to area food banks in Boone, DuPage, DeKalb, Grundy, Kane, Kankakee, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, Ogle, Stephenson, Will and Winnebago.
Want to feel joy? If you are able, join us in giving to others during this challenging time. Give where it means the most to you. Give where your gift gives the most good.
Your giving will assist those in need and bring you joy.
