“Giving is not just about making a donation. It is about making a difference.” –Kathy Calvin, CEO and President of the United Nations Foundation

Have you been considering donating to a charity, or looking for a new way to give back to your community? With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it is often easiest to simply write a check and return to your normal routine. While giving monetarily to nonprofits is very important, it can be equally beneficial to give the gift of your time. Whether you are looking to donate money or give through volunteer service, offerings of all types are greatly appreciated by those in need.

There are many opportunities available to give. You may choose to donate to a national group, your favorite local organization, or even directly to those in need. Other options include participating in fundraisers, weekly volunteering and service opportunities. Service opportunities are a great way to connect with friends, family and colleagues, and allow you to contribute using your personal skill sets, career training and talents. Fiscal giving not only allows tax-deductible donations, but it is also a satisfying deed in knowing you are helping others.

Penny Insurance strongly believes in giving back to our community. We are proud to announce that we will be participating in the Walnut Cove Members Association fundraiser at the Cliffs at Walnut Cove on Tuesday, June 14. Penny Insurance will sponsor a four-member team in the golf tournament, and prior to the tournament, we will host a pre-dinner cocktail party on June 10 in partnership with Roberto Coin. These fundraising events benefit various local nonprofits in the Asheville and Hendersonville area.

We look forward to see everyone on the links!
