What is more beautiful than giving back to one’s community?
Tustin, CA (PRWEB) October 19, 2012
Conaway and Conaway believe in "Doing Well by Doing Good". According to the National Center for Charitable Statistics, approximately 26.3% of Americans over the age of 16 volunteer for an organization, and according to The Chronicle of Philanthropy, 75% of young adults gave to charity last year. Charitable causes are an important part of the American lifestyle.
As a way of giving back to the community, Baroness Kimberly Moore has established the Kimberly Moore Foundation which leads project such as the Adopt-a-Letter, and Keeping Harmony Alive. In September 2012, James and Lorraine Conaway of Conaway & Conaway joined forces with The Kimberly Moore Foundation. They donated their service and now head up the Planned Giving department for this foundation.
As a fundraiser, Kimberly Moore and Astronaut Buzz Aldrin hosted a special dinner in September at the luxurious Cento Angeli residence DeVorzon Gallery in Beverly Hills. James and Lorraine Conaway were the special guest speakers, and were thrilled to be able to talk about “Doing Well by Doing Good”. Also in attendance were five of the children that the Kimberly Moore Foundation has assisted, and they each shared a riveting story. As Kimberly is passionate about helping those without a voice, empowering individuals and communities to change lives, James and Lorraine are honored to be able to lend a helping hand.
“What is more beautiful than giving back to one’s community? We are thrilled to partner up with the Kimberly Moore Foundation to make a difference in children’s lives,” says James and Lorraine Conaway.
The Conaways offer this advice for individuals wanting to do well by doing good:
1. Be Kind in Kind – You can give up to 30% non-cash items to a charity. You can donate your items and deduct the amount without an appraisal, just a receipt.
2. Creating Trusts – There are various trusts that can be established that will donate to charities, and potentially allow you to take tax deductions today.
3. Family Foundation – A Family Foundation is an excellent way to leave a legacy, and can be set up with minimal fees and effort.
