Pat and Kim Murphy have always been very passionate about giving back because they feel it is important to support the community that has supported their family. Two elder generations of the Murphy family have long partnered with us to facilitate their giving. Choosing a similar path was a natural fit for the couple when they decided to get started with their charitable giving.
“Some may find the word foundation or the concept of opening a fund intimidating, but it is actually a very affordable and easy tool that can simplify your giving,” said Pat. “Our donor-advised fund allows us to get started on our charitable goals at an early stage by contributing to it over the years when the time is right for us.”
Pat added that the fund is easy to manage and makes gifts to the organizations he and Kim care about a hassle-free process. Their donor-advised fund will allow them to support significant community needs when they arise.
“The Community Foundation is helping us to create a more formal structure for our charitable giving in an easy, flexible way,” said Pat.
