    Join the Columbia Museum of Art and Central Carolina Community Foundation for our planned giving series, “The Art of Giving,” with special guest speaker Barbara Bonner, author of Inspiring Generosity. This inspirational book includes the stories of 14 remarkable men and women who have changed both their own lives and the lives of others through their generosity, along with poems and quotes from inspired thinkers and philosophers like William Shakespeare, Winston Churchill, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and others. Inspiring Generosity has received accolades from around the world, including praise from President Obama, President Clinton, and Pope Francis. Ms. Bonner will give a talk on what she has learned about true generosity by working with philanthropists throughout her life, followed by a reception and book-signing.
