The Giving Guide
2012 Regional Philanthropic Opportunities
While philanthropy is a year-round activity, the holidays are a time when many think about those in need — and about how they can help. This is also the time BusinessWest presents its annual Giving Guide, which is produced to spotlight local nonprofit agencies and the work they do in the community, and to inspire area residents and business owners to discover ways they can help these organizations fulfill their missions. For this special section, we take a look at a unique philanthropic initiative known as the Day of Giving, and also turn the spotlight on several area nonprofits that are improving quality of life for residents in Western Massachusetts.
