Waldorf, MD – The Community Foundation of Southern Maryland is gearing up for its 10th Annual Philanthropy Day Luncheon, Raising The Next Generation Of Givers, on Friday, November 6, 11:30 – 1:30 p.m. at the Greater Waldorf Jaycees Community Center.  For this year’s annual luncheon, we are inducting families from Southern Maryland who have given back in extraordinary ways albeit through financial gifts, volunteering or community engagement. 

Susan Crites Price, a Washington, DC-based writer, expert on family philanthropy and author or co-author of seven books including Generous Genes: Raising Caring Kids in a Digital Age, will be joining us to teach us how to “Raise The Next Generation Of Givers”.  Her latest book is a road map for parents, grandparents and others who want to teach kids—from 2 to 20—to live compassionately. Susan has been interviewed on “Oprah,” NBC’s “Today,” the CBS “Early Show,” and by many other print and broadcast media. Julie Price is a Washington, DC writer specializing in fundraising for nonprofit organizations.

Tickets, sponsorship and more information is available online at www.somdgiving.org or by calling 240-670-4483 (GIVE).  This annual event coincides with National Philanthropy Day on November 15.
