Live to Give

The Live to Give philosophy is the belief that our foundation is built on. It is the basic concept of taking advantage of opportunities to give back and help others while simultaneously living your life. It is promoting and facilitating a charitable lifestyle. The interpretation of what Live to Give means is a personal one and means something different to each of us. It may be volunteering in your community, making a monetary donation to a cause, or helping in a way that you know is important. What does Live to Give mean to you?
