This month, Chair of the Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation Valerie Jacobs, MA, MFT, and I were invited by and RJ Kelly, Founder and Chief Visionary Officer of the Wealth Legacy Family of Companies, to participate in an interview about leaving a lasting legacy through philanthropy.

During the interview, we discussed:

  • End-of-year giving vs. intentional giving
  • Common misperceptions about philanthropy and giving
  • The reality of philanthropy to make a lasting difference in families and the lives of others
  • Choosing who you want to give to
  • Community needs in the San Diego region moving forward
