Great Causes Need Great Supporters

For the first time since I began this blog 58 months and 293 posts ago, I am straying from the topic of writing to make a special announcement about giving. The recession has forced everyone to cut back on spending, and this especially has hurt those organizations that serve the underprivileged individuals of our communities.

With this thought in mind, I introduce you to some of my clients who do extraordinary work on behalf of their constituents:

  • Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (, a pioneer researcher in cancer, neuroscience, genomics, and bioinformatics.
  • Common Ground Community (, a national leader in solutions to homelessness.
  • Independent Living Association (, an exceptional advocate for developmentally disabled individuals.
  • National Urban League (, a civil rights organization doing great things for underserved urban communities.
  • New York Public Library (, the number one source for sourcing, which is a veritable guardian of knowledge.
  • United Way of New York City (, a great source for providing a general endowment if the more specific organizations do not match your philanthropic interests.

I hope the spirit moves you to give generously to one of these outstanding organizations.
