The African Proverb asks and answers this question:
“When’s the best time to plant a tree?”
“Twenty years ago.”
“When’s the second best time?”
When’s the best time to start giving back… start giving more… more time, money, energy and influence?
When’s the best time to focus on planned giving that can sustain your mission for decades to come… that helps donors give more that they didn’t know they had to give… that provides giving dollars and more money for them?
Twenty years ago.
Second best time: Today!
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”
– Lao Tzu
