June 2013: “Personal Enrichment Through Philanthropy”

During the first week of June, Christine Sherry and Julie Shafer presented at Rancho La Puerta, a resort in Baja California, Mexico. Leveraging Rancho La Puerta’s mission of health, wellness and mindfulness, Christine and Julie provided a unique educational opportunity focused on philanthropy. This session explored the latest research that links philanthropy, community engagement and volunteerism with longer, happier lives. They shared information, best practices and skills for those already involved in charitable activities and for those who are considering broadening their lives and interests in the philanthropic/non profit sector.
