When Kathy LeMay was growing up, she was drawn to social causes, but she thought people had to be millionaires to be philanthropists. As she set out in life, she discovered that small donations were as important as large ones.
Working in the former Yugoslavia with survivors of the rape and genocide camps, Ms. LeMay saw how important small donations were to those she was trying to help and realized the value of giving, not only money but also time, talent, and other resources.
Today, she shares those lessons in her book, The Generosity Plan, as well as in her work as a philanthropy adviser whose clients include Morgan Stanley Smith Barney and JPMorgan Chase.
Join us on Wednesday, December 1, at noon U.S. Eastern time, for a live online discussion with Ms. LeMay, who will answer questions about how ordinary people can become more involved in giving.
This discussion is part of a series of talks with the nation's most interesting philanthropists, which The Chronicle is holding with Bolder Giving, an organization that works to encourage philanthropists to give more generously.
