Kern Community Foundation believes in philanthropy — the practice of giving now and making long-term investments to support effective charitable organizations and programs.
That is what foundation President and CEO Jeffrey R. Pickering said Wednesday on “Live Well.”
Bakersfield is a city that gives back to its local nonprofit organizations and supports the goals and mission of each, Pickering said.
The foundation’s Giving Card is now available and is the perfect gift this Christmas.Much like a retail gift card, the Giving Card is presented to a person and they get to choose which local nonprofit they want to receive the money.“Making giving a habit is the first step,” Pickering said.
