You’ve heard us mention “Valley Gives Back” on our podcast, and you may have seen our “Valley Gives Back” sponsored posts on social media.

Now Sharon Closius explains the meaning behind the phrase in the latest episode of “Navel Gazing: The Valley Indy Podcast.”

Press play to listen.

“Valley Gives Back” is a new initiative from The Valley Community Foundation in Derby. Closius is the foundation’s president and CEO.

Valley residents donate money to charity and nonprofits all the time. Just look at the millions raised locally each year during The Great Give, or major nonprofit fundraisers such as “Men Who Cook.”

But the idea behind “Valley Gives Back“ is, in part, to get more people to consider “planned giving“ when it comes to supporting local nonprofits.

Estate planning is becoming more and more important to help sustain nonprofits and traditional funding sources fade away.

For more information, listen to the podcast and visit ValleyGivesBack.
