Understanding Charitable Giving

The Future Fund has a speaker Wednesday evening who could help you be a better giver to charity

Many people donate to charity at the end of the year, but don't know how that money is really used.

The Future Fund, affiliated with the CNY Community Foundation, helps givers understand how donations can be more effective and how not-for-profits use those funds.

Chris Murray, co-chair of the group, says the organization has helped him be a better steward of his money, and of the organizations he supports.

The Future Fund has a speaker Wednesday evening, 5:30 to 7pm, on better giving. It's at the CNY Philanthropy Center (East Fayette St. in Syracuse). 422-9538 will let them know you're coming. More info:
