A Culture of Giving: Thank you for your contribution….
Several things have come up in the last week or so that got me thinking about our “culture of giving.” This week I was the author of two letters thanking SFCP members for their kind and generous donations. At the beginning of the week I was surprised and delighted by a letter I received. A member of SFCP had sent us a check for $5000.00! This generous contribution was a gesture on the member’s behalf, intended to represent his gratitude and appreciation for our support of psychoanalytic training. There were no strings attached, although the donor, clearly a participant in some of our streaming programs, asked that we consider upgrading our microphones!
