Holiday Giving

Many people consider charitable contributions part of their holiday traditions. The non-profit organizations they support rely on year-end donations to boost their coffers. Today we'll talk about holiday giving with Angelica Light, the President And CEO of the Norfolk Foundation (which will soon merge with The Virginia Beach Foundation to form the Hampton Roads Community Foundation). Our guest, Reggie Corinaldi, who heads the African American Giving Initiative, will be in studio to explain how this local initiative, members have the opportunity to see the impact that their financial support and volunteerism have on community issues. We'll also check in with the folks at The Salvation Army.  The organization's bell-ringers now take plastic and you can even text your donation! We'll also check in with Bob Ottenhoff, GuideStar’s President and CEO, about ways to be sure your donation is going to a legitimate organization.
