Forging twin paths of giving

As we enter the traditional season of giving, I respect the contributions the Colorado Combined Campaign (CCC) makes to our community. United Way, its partner organizations with tight budgets, donors and volunteers do so much good to help so many that I have always felt my small contribution was a good investment in our community.

I have always been torn by the Chinese proverb, "Give a person a fish and you feed him/her for a day. Teach a person to fish and you feed her/him for a lifetime," and I have usually devoted my community efforts to both areas. I believe in CU's community role as much as United Way's and therefore this year I am going to give to both CCC and CU.

I have started giving monthly to the University of Colorado Foundation. It has several programs to choose from and Jeni Webster was very helpful in getting me set up. Who knows? A member of CU's community might discover the secret to how Santa's reindeer can transport all those presents around the world in one night. My car could sure use that source of power.
