News-Sun, Evening Star & Herald-Republican

News-Sun, Evening Star & Herald-Republican: "AUBURN � Nov. 15 is National Philanthropy Day, a day designated to celebrate giving.

First observed in 1986, National Philanthropy Day celebrates the daily contributions individuals and organizations across the world make to countless causes and missions.

When many people think of philanthropy, Andrew Carnegie and Bill Gates, even Eli Lilly and Peyton Manning come to mind. People tend to think only millionaires are able to give significantly to worthwhile causes. But, thanks to Indiana�s unique network of giving, that notion is becoming a thing of the past.

Indiana now has more than 92 community foundations. Every county has its own foundation already established as a service to Hoosiers who want to give. The DeKalb County Community Foundation began in 1996 to serve DeKalb County."
