2018 RFPs Requested By JLC

A few days ago I saw the presser below regarding the Junior League of Columbia opening their RFPs (Request For Proposals).

As many of you know, the Junior League of Columbia is our practice’s philanthropy of choice. I have a long history with the League; several women on our team are active members, and some of my best friends and my wife are members or sustainers. Personally, my relationship with the women of the League has been fun, meaningful, impactful, and real.

That said, the press release below is where the business side of all this happens.

The beauty of our relationship with JLC that no one sees is that Amanda, Elizabeth, Amy, and I know and trust that the JLC will be far more effective and deliberate with our funds than we ever could. As you can see in the link, the process is professionally administered, intensely deliberated on, and properly executed to the best candidates they see fit.

In short, it is first class.

Much of the money raised throughout the year (see top image above) funds the plethora of programs the League facilitates around the Midlands, first hand. $150,000 is distributed via RFPs.

Why am I writing about RFPs, you ask? Two reasons: 1 – I want folks that work for, belong to, and/or believe in an organization that would like to know more about these potential funds and the process to be aware of them and apply; 2 – I want folks that are searching for a place to contribute in 2018 and beyond to consider the Junior League as just what you may be looking for.

If you have any questions or would like to talk it out, I’m a very open book and can point you in the right direction. My number is 803-447-8683 .  For more information, click here and check out the thorough application and process.

Thank you!
