All too often, smaller donations are ignored by professional and lay leaders alike. However, most communal institutions will tell you that those small donations go a long way in supporting operating and programmatic expenses.

A few weeks ago, I found this touching piece that underscores the impact that smaller giving can have on the donors themselves.
