In June, when we celebrated our 10th anniversary, not only did we grant funds to two charities and Hofstra Medical School, but all of our past recipients were in attendance to celebrate with us. Each one of the sixteen charities gave us a summary of what happened to their organization in these past 10 years. The good feeling continued into lunch, when many of the charities connected with each other, hoping to coordinate ideas and functions. Since that lunch, I have heard from many of the charities , not only thanking me for the invitation to our philanthropy event, but saying how impressed they were with MWI and the "good" that we have done and will continue to do. I invited them all back in 10 years, for our 20th anniversary.
The philanthropy committee is now in the process of seeking and investigating charities for 2019.
