KPCC reporters want to reach people who give to nonprofits and charities. No, not to fill our own coffers – we’re planning news coverage on how Southern Californians are reshaping the philanthropic landscape.

Our region is home to a large population of entrepreneurs, many of them immigrants and children of immigrants. They will pass on wealth to family, as one might expect, but experts predict they will also give generously to organizations that help others.

What motivates your giving? Are you a check-writer or do you get more involved in the nitty-gritty of spending your donations? What has surprised you in the process of giving?

Your response is confidential; nothing you share is aired or published without your permission. Your insights are seen by journalists and used only for journalism, and never for fundraising or marketing. A reporter or producer might contact you for additional information.
