Harvard Business Review: Why Major Philanthropists Are Giving More Money to Just One Cause

Despite the economic and social benefits, there are fears that reform will not be a priority for the new administration or congressional leaders. Fortunately, private funders are ramping up their efforts to help tackle not only criminal justice reform but also several other social and environmental challenges facing the U.S., including conservation, immigration, and education reform.

I am a ‘horizontal’ as opposed to a ‘vertical’ person, meaning I have a wide variety of interests and passions as opposed to depth in one or two areas of need. Because of my broad base of interest, philanthropy was becoming a complicated, tedious, and solo effort. Setting up my Donor Advised Fund with the Community Foundation serving Southwest Colorado simplified the process. I am able to deliberately establish a giving pattern that will continue on after I am no longer able to make philanthropic decisions.

- Kathleen Adams, Board Member

I am extremely proud to be a Fund Holder, as well as President of the Board of Directors for this outstanding organization. It has elevated philanthropy in our community by pairing the needs of the nonprofits with those who have a passion to fund their mission. The Foundation is an important engine to our community’s health.
