Family Donor

 

Sharing family values.

"We wanted to share our community values with our children and share our family values with our community," says Sara Lin, explaining why she and her husband Peter established the Lin Donor Advised Fund at their local community foundation. Every year, the Lins and their children meet with community foundation staff to recommend uses of the fund. Two years ago, they recommended that it be used to help start an inner-city daycare center. Last year, the fund helped expand the hours of this center, in addition to supporting an area arts camp. "We look forward to a day when we might involve our children's children in giving back," says Sarah.
